  • Super humbling to see Mother Theresa's room and final resting place. Museum is small but poignant. Nuns at the house are super nice and speak English well. Highly recommended if in Kolkata.
  • Calm place. It has the tomb of mother teresa. Opens for public from 9 am to see the room of her and to see her belongings. No eateries around, hence eat and go. Close by a bakery is there but he sells old stale stuff, but you can buy bottled water.
  • You can feel the warmth of the great soul who served humankind with such great passion. It's like you almost feel HER presence there. SHE lived in such simple surroundings, never used even a fan in HER room.
  • The best place in all of India! So much peace and joy! Absolutely worth a visit and I recommend staying at least for a few days to volunteer with the sisters! Be sure to attend Holy Mass any day at 6am or their time of prayer at 6:30pm!
  • Here you 'll see mother's tomb, mother's room and museum. small but very peaceful place. most of forgieners come to pray. Good vibes to visit here and spent some time in prayer room. Sisters talk very nicely. Photography in museum not allowed.
