The inmate tourists are received by the jail officials and given a prisoner’s dress, steel plate, glass and steel mug and a night at the prison. They can spend their time gardening and cleaning their barracks or the same work as assigned to the prisoners there. A pre-cooked meal is provided while the other facilities are the same as a common prisoner.

 The jail was opened for tourists in June 2016 when a new jail was constructed and inmates moved in and since then several commoners have stayed in the Sangareddy Prison. This jail tourism is also becoming popular among the foreign tourists and recently two Malaysian nationals had flown to spend their weekend. 

A unique experience; sometimes to understand the value of freedom!

This is different indeed, but personally I would not like to experience this. Reasons may vary but for me heritage prisons make more sense than such ones.
