Port Blair, Sep 17 (UNI) Tourists from different parts of the world were amazed to see sand structures of the historic Cellular Jail and a figure of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, which have taken shape with sand on a sea beach of Andaman and Nicobar islands.

Noted sand sculptors Sudarsan Pattnaik along with his students created the designs at the famous Carbyn' Cove, situated in Andaman's capital town, Port Blair.

Hundreds of tourists visiting the beach were left spellbound by Mr Pattnaik's work.

According to Mr Pattnaik, the sculptures, which were made yesterday, would last for another two or three days. In fact if the weather was favuorable, they could stay intact for a week also.

''It took 24 hours to design the sculpture of Cellular Jail and Netaji,'' said Mr Pattnaik, an internationally acclaimed sand artist.

The unique programme is supported by the Andaman Tourism department as a run-up to celebrate 'World Tourism Day', which will be celebrated on September 27 all over the world.
