This is one of the places you have to visit in Kolkata. Despite being a really busy city, Mother House is pretty quite when i was there, located only a few meters from the main street, this place is easy to find. It's really good to be able to see where Mother Teresa buried, as one of the most well-known... More

I could feel Mother Teresa's presence in the Mother house, it was as if I expected the tiny figure to appear round the corner. Her room that has been preserved the it was when she lived there, is reflective of the kind of giving and self sacricing person she was The exhibition that tells her story also displays the Noble...

This is a nice place to visit in the busy kolkata. You may have to wait for a time to go in. We were touched by the work these dedicated christian women do - looking after the interlectually disabled kids who would be cast aside by the society. Very sad but touching. This is our Father God at work.

Just as a place its nothing..however to know how someone lived here had spent all her life for people of Calcutta is simply humbling. Still the surrounding areas are very dirty and poor, can't imagine the state of the people then. You get to visit mother's tomb and small museum. Must visit to remind our duty to serve society.

A visit to this place is "Not Glamorous" but extremely humbling. It has a small museum that recreates the life and times of Mother Teressa. Compared to other museums which have a higher "political" significance, the resources available to Mother house are visibly limited.

I visited Mother House at a time when it was closed to visitors, but in spite of this I was greeted warmly and allowed to come inside. The sister took me to Mother Teresa's tomb and even allowed me to see her room. Photographs cannot be taken anywhere except the tomb. The place is clean, quiet and so peaceful. The... More
