Despite an infamous reputation, the historical written record indicates that the prison was humanely administered and was a model institution for its time. Prisoners had free time during which they hand-crafted many items to be sold at public bazaars held at the prison on Sundays after church services. Prisoners also had regular medical attention and access to a good hospital.
