A small place for a great person. The building is hardly noticeable from the main road. The tomb is a simple white marble one. The small museum is very interesting retracing the steps of Mother Theresa from her youth. You can climb few steps to see what was her bedroom. Nuns are still living in the complex.

Mother´s house is the place where mother Theresa has lived, prayed and worked together with her family of sisters. We were welcomed by very friendly sisters. We could see the tomb of mother Theresa, her own room and one room of the monastry is a kind of museum with a lot of information and personal objects from mother Theresa. You... More

Why she selected Kolkata to serve is still a mystry to me. Never the less I consider myself to be lucky to be a part of the city that was shared by our very own Mother. Yes we all call her " MOTHER" . Visiting this place will give you the opportunity to see people/ children in way you could... More

Teenaged daughter and I visited here just for about an hour. It was too short, but we wanted to move along to the other attraction that morning. We just took a taxi from our hotel here. I suggest bringing the address to show your taxi driver, though for this particular attraction, Mother House, our driver knew where it was. It... More

The sacred environment showcases the sacrifices of the Mother towards the upliftment of Kolkata's poor and needy. The place is neatly kept and clean.
