I feel this is also a must visit for visitors to Kolkata. Very unassuming and quiet place. A tribute to Mother Terresa. Can offer and pray peacefully and pay respect to the Mother.

This was the home of Mother Theresa where she lived the last 50 or so years of her life. Her small bed with a simple bed and mattress was simple and reflected Mother Theresa as a person with such humility and only cared for the well being of others who needed help and comfort.

I think Mother Teresa would have liked it this way.Simply decorated. This house resonates with her immortal presence. Hope they keep it this way.

The mother house looks after young children with serve disability and feeds the poor. We visited and made a donation and we were asked if we wanted to visit the children. We did and it brought tears to my eyes. It was so good seeing these children, many who could not walk being nursed and stimulated by volunteers and local... More

The monastery of St. Theresa is the place we're they feed people who are hungry and give medicine to the sick for free. The monastery is not the place where you can see the tomb of St. Theresa. It's actually located on the other building like 5 mins walk to each other on the same street. The room of mother... More

The visit does not take long as there is little to see, you are mainly visiting because of who lived and worked there.

This modest dwelling, tucked away down a small alleyway, is where Mother Teresa worked and also where she lived, eventually died and is buried. There is a display of photos giving an overview of her life and works. Nuns still work in the property.
