Thane prison holds a lot of history. According to the Thane Municipal Corporation, it was a fort whose construction started in 1730 AD.
The authorities have proposed a plan to the state to allow visitors on special days like Independence day, Republic day and Hutatma day.
There will be artists appointed to paint murals that narrate history.
They have a separate gate that will allow visitors and hence the security of the prison will not be sacrificed
The approval is being awaited.
