A calm and spiritual place.

This is a place were you have to come once in a lifetime. Nothing special, nothing fancy, everything is kept very simple, but you can breath the air of spirituality and prayers.

Fascinating place to visit and quite inspiring. Its quite easy to wander round and there is a room put aside to Mothers' history. Still a working convent.

A visit I will never forget. Having the opportunity to see inside Mother Teresa's room is something I could never forget. Very peaceful, no photos allowed except in the tomb

A trip to Kolkata would not be complete without a trip to Mother House. Despite the constant traffic on the street outside, Mother House and especially the room which houses the tomb of Mother Teresa, is a restful place to visit. One cannot but be inspired by what this woman achieved.

It is a legendary place in calcutta...and you can stop by for a quick peek on the bose road. 20-30mins is good enough.
