The house is locayed in one of the ordinary lanes in kolkatta. You can see the tomb where the mother is burried and a small museum where things belonging to the mother is displayed. On the first floor her bed room with minimal of things used by her is displayed. This place humbles you in all respect and a must... More

Mothers House is smaller than I imagined but inside its a quiet retreat from hectic Kolkata. It's a working nunnery so you have the chance to sit and talk to them in the court yard and by listening to them you get the sense that the spirit of Mother Teresa and her work lives on through them and their dedication...

Interesting and you can see her entombed resting place and the simple bedroom she lived in. It's still an active convent and you could be lucky enough to be there when the novice nuns are singing their prayers - quite moving.

I loved seeing the place where it all started. Mother Teresa's room was so simple and amazing.. the museum room tells her story beautifully and visiting her tomb was beyond sureal. This is a MUST SEE if you are in Kolkata.

The one thing I wold like to mention is that the reminder i got within when I was taken to Mother House by my tour support. Happiness and peace does not come from earning pots of money, visiting malls, shopping and night clubs. Those are like steroid shots but real peace and healing comes from sharing, giving and understanding. Recommend... More

The mission was one of the reasons I was in Calcutta. My next trip I plan to stay nearby to volunteer.

When we visit this place we came to know why Mother was worth bestowing a Noble to her. She was always interested in the uplift of neglected and poor from the society. We can easily understand this when we vist this place.

Mother has done some fabulous social service in her life time. The museum has lot of her collection. The place is kind of noisy ( middle of traffic ). Few minutes of silent meditation is worth ur time.
