This iconic building is at Kali Ghat Road, Near Kali Temple. Touched my heart truely on the visit. Great social work initiatives. Established by Mother Teresa. Engaged in curing and providing shelter to the sick, destitute and the dying people in the region. The building was previously an abandoned temple of Goddess Kali.
