I wasn't prepared for the sensations I experienced when I visited Mother Theresa's tomb and the Missionaries of Charity. The silence, the cleanliness, the sincerity of the convent nuns and workers made me feel humble and strange. We were kindly admitted "out of hours" - it was our mistake: we had misunderstood the visiting hours. I can't forget the message... More

Visit to Mother House is a memorable experience and hence, recommended for every tourist visiting Kolkata. It is a serene place and always have few people around. Going in the morning is a better option instead of afternoon.

I wasn't prepared for the sad stories I read here and it was very sad. But to know there was a human being with such compassion making a real difference to peoples lives was heart warming. Pop in while you are in Calcutta, support the cause with a small donation so they can keep up the good work for the... More
