A trip to the home of Mother Teresa is low key but very special. Having admired her all my life, seeing the photographs in the room dedicated to her achievements and seeing her modest home and sparce bedroom was very humbling and an important part of our visit to Kolkata.

A must visit for tourist visiting The City of Joy. The ambience is soothing, the placement well planned and the place is quite spacious. The view of Eco Tourism park from the balcony is also facinating....

While the stark simplicity of the place, was unmistakable and moving, the expected energy, especially where the mortal remains of the Mother are enshrined, was missing.

I was humbled by the visit... could feel Mother Teresa serenity. While knowing her story and the vow of poverty I was still quietly struck by the simplicity of the house, which continues to this day to live in Mother's principles. If you are in Kolkata, irrespective of your faith (or absence of), do take the time to visit this... More

A must visit if you are in Kolkatta. One can see the place where Mother Teresa's mortal remains are buried as also the room, Mother used when she was alive and exhibition of her possessions, awards, writings, giving you an insight into her early life as well which is rather less known. Place humbles you by demonstrating the simplicity in... More

Here you 'll see mother's tomb, mother's room and museum. small but very peaceful place. She lived in such simple surroundings, never used even a fan in her room. Good vibes to visit here and spent some time in prayer room. Sisters talk very nicely.
