Trips to Kolkata must include a visit to the Mother House, where Mother Teresa spent the majority of her life serving others. The serenity in this building is incredible, and the sisters will greet you at the door with a smile and a blessing.

This is not a tourist place as such, is a holy place for catholic pilgrims. If you know the life and story of Mother Teresa do not miss. If you have some days extra you can even do some volunteer work. The place is simple full of spirituality in the middle of Calcuta. As a pilgrim you visit Mothers Grave,... More

A must-see place in Kolkata. A very interesting visit. First, the small museum with photos, documents and memories from Mother Theresa's life. Then you climb some steps up to her cell-room (the place where she lived and prayed). Finally, a stop in silence near her tomb, a pilgrimage place for everyone

Mother terresa was a special human, to walk where she walked and to view her simple surroundings is humbling.

it is a sober place, but very powerful, just to get to know about unconditional love. No need to be a catholic to go there and feel the vibes

After a day of touring and seeing the slums of Kolkata first hand, I have a whole new appreciation for Mother Teresa and her devotion. The Mother House has a small, but very informative museum that tells the life story of this woman who devoted her life to the poorest of poor. Do not miss this moving experience.

The Mother house is located very close to park street and the main city area. One must visit if around the place. It was very easy to miss building if one doesn't know the exact location. This is the place where Mother Teresa lived, worked from and also where her tomb is. Very peaceful place and can just walk in,... More

Definitely worth a visit and the other reviews in here give some useful advice about visiting times etc. we spoke direct to one of the missionaries working there and found it interesting. The surrounding area outside is not the best but is fine during the day.
