At Mother House one can feel the calm and peaceful environment. It also exhibits life of Mother Teresa. Not to miss when in Kolkata.

Great visit to the previous home of a legend. Well kept and presented. Suitable for 1-2 hours where you will find a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A must visit for Kolkata

This is the place where Mother used to reside during her days. From here only she served the poor & downtrodden of Kolkata. Her last rites were also carried out here itself which was witnessed by all the top dignitaries of the world.

This is a small simple house where Mother Theresa use to live, her tumb is there, and you can feel her presence all around. So much peace and love aroun the air.

Decided to take a morning walk before having breakfast at the hotel. It turned out to be a good and peaceful start of the trip. After walking through the filthy and crowded streets of Kolkata lined with homeless and tired-looking people, and strolling past a cemetery full of great tombs of men and women who once lived here, we spent...

I thought I would see the work and selflessness of this order on this visit, how wrong I was. This is not much more a tribute to Mother Teresa and very little else. I saw selected photographs, video clips and heard commentary of the work but it seemed too far removed from the the actual work that is done. I... More

Home of Revered Mother Teresa,this place is pilgrimage rather than sight-seeing spot,like Birthplace of Swami Vivekanand and Dakshineshwar. Mother started tending lepers,considered abominable at that time,since 1950 till Her mortal death. Her body was laid to rest here. A prayer can help mind and soul.

Almost as soon as you enter the Mother House, peace and tranquillity descend. The museum really shares a very special part of Mother Teresa’s life. Her bedroom will reflect the sparse simple way of a MT Sister. Showing you the simplistic pure way of life that these beautiful sisters live and how much their vow of poverty means to them.... More

Not very humble marble tomb in a small, multi-storey complex. Small museum attached. Some nuns wandering around in the famous blue/white uniform. Unfortunately no photos allowed. More of a tick in the box place really, unless you're a fan of the woman. Which I am not.
