It was very nice to see and experience even though I was a tiny bit disappointed that they changed their visiting hours of the museum on a very short notice (I was already there) and I couldn"t stay for 2 more hours. The atmosphere is very nice though and everyone is very friendly. I loved the calm.

Attend the 4:30PM Mass on Friday. Very hard to understand the English and a Nun yelled at me for stepping out of the building entirely to make a phone call. Great to see a place of interest where such a historical figure lived. Museum was loaded with artifacts. Very clean washroom it was actually one of the three places in... More

This one puts Kolkata on the global map. One of the famous places of Kolkata. One must visit to understand the simplicity of life.

A quiet abode which houses the memorial of Mother Teresa. You go once and you want to go and pray again and some thing tells you what you ask she will intercede for you with the Blessed Virgin Mary! Devotes always coming in. A Museum to tell you more and it houses the Missionary Sisters who still carry on her... More

I found this interesting although I'm not one of Mother Therea's most ardent admirers. Worth a visit, but not essential to see.

The place is home of the real immortal goddess, as no words could describe " MOTHER TERESA " she was a power above all,... More
