  • A very significant place where mother Teresa lived and worked for the poorest of the poor. A very simple and ordinary woman who worked with extraordinary zeal. You can see her tomb and get her blessings too. It's well arranged. You can have some also a look at the museum which displays the life and work of mother Teresa.

  • Atmosphere inside the museum is good and silent.. Behaviour of the sisiter is polite and helpful..Many fact you may be known from this museum .

  • Never miss it, but be aware it is not a tourist place Never miss visiting this place if you are in Kolkata, but be aware it is not a tourist place. The whole place looks so humble and will give you an idea of the great work done by Mother and her people for the people of this world. Spend some silent moment at her burial place and in premise, you will feel as a better person. Saint Mother Theresa sacred place to those who understand what this lady was about - her love for the sick and dying in the slums and went beyond her call to duty to take care of them - a tribute well done at this her final resting place, with her room as it was when she lived there .. a chapel to have service and also just to communicate to your Lord

  • Great place ..calm and peaceful a lot of tourists visit to see the tomb of Mother Teresa.. They have done a great work of preserving artefacts and small things Mother used.. Must visit place if in Kolkata

  • One could feel the kindness mother had as you enter the place. They had prayers, mother's room and photos that depicts her life at different stages.
