Ross Island, South Andaman, India

Ross Island was originally developed by British colonialists as an 18th-century settlement in the Andaman archipelago. It was initially inhabited from 1788 and was controlled by the British up until March 1942 when Japanese troops took control of the Nicobar and Andaman Islands. Remnants of the original structures remain, including a church, houses, a hospital and swimming pool. There are also the remains of Japanese bunkers on the island.
