“Huge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Saw mill Chatham is one of the Oldest and biggest of saw mills of India . When you enter their is a huge gate with Indian Emblem on it , which will make you feel proud. When you enter , you will be astonish to see how well maintained and how well behaved are the workers in there . There is nice muesum inside which tell you some old stories and art works of past time . Then u can enter the main premises and can actually see the working . The workers will guide you to understand how the machines work. This Is just a good end to your trip as mine .

“Visit if you are interested in seeing a sawmill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

It can be looked upon as an educational visit to a sawmill. There is also a small museum inside which may satisfy a few people. However, if you are running short of time during your Andaman trip, you can skip it and will not miss much. You may rather spend maximum time on the beaches.

“Poorly managed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Well actually speaking there is nothing to see there. instead it should be made a proper museum in view of British airstrike over Chatham island during world war II.

“History to current day experience...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Worth watching if you are intrested in watching an historical place constantly updated..

There is a bomb pit said to be bombed during second world war... its huge and they built a walk way ..... nice experience ..

The main sawmill with huge blades and imported machines from England and about 150 yrs old... working machines.. There is a small museum with good information about Andaman islands as well as the wood available on the island and the tribal information etc...

Overall a very good experience...
