Mother House, Kolkata (Calcutta)

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.

  • I am blessed to visit the mother house. I heard a lot of stories and testimonies about Mother Teresa so I wanted to see where she lived. Sisters were very kind and helpful there. House was full of foreign tourists. I prayed to the Mother Teresa where she is lying. Definitely everyone should go there and pray.
  • I think one of the several famous place in the world is Mother's House that situates in Calcutta. Not only the people of India but also maximum persons visiting India specially Calcutta wish to visit this house. It war the the main center of the Mother to work for those who are homeless and have not anything in their lives.
  • A great place to visit and to experience the peace.. This place has a grave of Mother Teresa and some items to describe her works. You can visit her room and see the good paintings. Also you can talk to some sisters.. This place is easy to access and to locate.. I consider it as one of the most visit place of Kolkatta but be sure you start little early towards this place otherwise traffic will kill you... Traffic of Kolkata is so deadly.. God Luck People..
  • I won't be able to explain this place. You need to visit to the place once... It's Soo amazing
  • Mother house is a must visit place for any people across the globe. It is located on just opposite of St James Church. It is a holy place. You can feel the difference in your own when you enter the house. The whole place is very well maintained by missionary of charity. There is a museum. You have to visit the museum. This museum is a place where you can find Mother Teresa's shoes, teeth,bag etc. You must see the house of the Mother from where she went to Jesus. The room is very small just above the kitchen with no fan and having only a bed and a sitting area. You will understand that how simple was her lifestyle. She gave her all life to poor people.
