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.

  • Mother Teresa doesn't need any introduction. Whenever we think of love and compassion for the poor and needy people, Mother's name come to our mind. And this is the house where Mother lived for many years until her soul merged with the Eternal God. The infinite works she did for the welfare of the society cannot be put into words and completed. However, a few activities of her very simple life and compassionate works can be known when you visit this place. The sisters here still follows her path and serve the needy ones whole heartedly as instructed and shown by the Mother.
  • A place to reflect upon our lives. What do we need to live? Do we really need all the material things to be happy or whether true happiness comes from within by doing selfless service. Whenever, we think we are burdened with problems and life is harsh we must visit this place. Our problems may then seem miniscule ....
  • Such a beautiful blessed place... Please plan in advance and enjoy the blessings of Mother Teresa
  • What best I can say about her ... she is an Angle of good hope and Mother to the poorest of poor...
