Really worth to visit this simple yet powerful home where Mother Teresa stayed in Kolkata. Very much peaceful and you can pray in front of Mother's tomb as well. Also you can see Mother's room where she lived her simple life. You can witness most of her personal belongings as well as the prestigious Nobel Prize here.

This is the actual place where Mother Teresa used to stay in Kolkata. The place is very pious and serene. Please take your children/family to visit this place as this will be real learning for all of us as to how simple Mother used to Stay.

Absolutely beautiful from the tomb, to the museum and being able to view the room in which she lived. Be mindful of those begging and do not engage them. You cannot take photos of her room or the museum but have at it with her tomb. If you're lucky you may come in during a Catholic mass as I did.... More

This was such a humbling experience and an easy site to visit for 30 minutes or more. The life of Mother Teresa was inspiring and incredible - it made you think a lot about yourself and the world we live in now.
