Must visit place in Kolkata. You will be awed at the simplicity of Mother and her livelihood. Her personal living space was an extremely small room on top of the kitchen and furnished with only a simple bed and table . One needs to visit this place to believe. You will definitely leave Mother House with more humility and compassion.

I thought I would get a better sense of Mother Teresa's life. You dont really get to see any of the work, is more of a memorial to her.

What an experience to visit the tomb of Mother Teresa. Nothing designed to appeal to tourists. Just a place of peace and calm. Visit the simple room that was once Mother Teresa's.

We went to Mother House and Sister Michael took us around. The simple life of Mother Teresa and her sisters was so humbling. It inspires you to make your life count for something more. I would highly recommend this place especially if you have young children to let them see the sacrifices and the impact one woman can make. I... More

This is a small house where Mother Teresa spent her last days. A small exhibition of her life is displayed in one hall. It is a calm and nice place amidst the city.

For a place of such high international significance, it is very simple and humble. And the mere simplicity of the place will blow you away! Any kolkata trip is incomplete without visiting the mother house

This was a lovely experience seeing the extremely humble home and surroundings of this beautiful soul. Her life story was told simply by way of writings and photographs. I am not of this denomination but have always been moved by her work with the poor and downtrodden. Well worth a visit.
