We visited the tomb as well as the home where Mother Teresa stayed. Well looked after and clean. Visited the orphanage also...most satisfying visit. Deeply moved by the excellent work being done by the sisters (nuns).

I went to Mother's House twice when I was in Kolkata. I went on a tour and had the opportunity to see Mother Theresa's simple bedroom, her final resting place and also a small chapel used for prayers. On the second occasion, I got up very early on a Sunday morning and headed to Mother's House for Mass at 0600h. There were a number of volunteers in attendance and also dozens of Sisters of Charities. In the chapel there is also a small statue of Mother Theresa where she always used to sit for Mass etc. Whilst the chapel was very plain, the opportunity to attend Mass in that sacred space was amazing and something that I am very glad I got to do.

go there to find out the story of Mother Teresa and those who continue the good work in her name. There is always someone to greet you-one of the Sisters or a volunteer. You can see Mother's bedroom and the small museum is full of interesting info including her noble peace prize

The house in general and the room of mother Teresa in particular, is the symbol of humbleness.i was really impressed by the modest life this amazing woman had, and her unconditional love for humans and truly devotion to God she had. The house is surrounded by Mother Theresa's quotes. i highly recomand this place to be visited.
