So many things were said after mother Teresa become saint. I wanted to go and see by myself her work legacy and I must say I didn't expect such organization and cleanness. I went to both, house and hospital. Very interesting places. Don't miss it, no matter your faith.

On the side of a noisy chaotic street lies this truly spiritual oasis. Being in the presence of this building and with the sisters was an experience I won't forget.

Even though it is questionable that Mother Theresa performed miracles in the year of her canonization nobody can question her dedication to her people and improving lives in india. Mother house shows the simple austerity of her life and the people around her who supported her and help maintain her legacy in India. Place of pilgrimage..

Go on a Friday for rosary and Mass...it is close quarters and very warm, but you will have a transcendent spiritual experience. God bless Mother and her sisters!
