Mother House is the site of Mother Teresa's tomb and contains a small museum dedicated to the founder of the Missionaries of Charity. The simple white tomb is always covered with flowers and heartwarming messages written in yellow petals. See sandals and saris the humanitarian wore on her many missions, and visit the room in which she slept on a camp bed. Take a picture under the statue of Mother Teresa, holding a rosary in one hand and blessing the visitors with the other.
