Mother House - Review

The Mother House in Kolkata is where Mother Teresa has been laid to rest and it also houses her room and its items. This place is just like Mother was; simple and pure. More than what you see, what you experience at this place will stay with you forever. You can experience a feeling of contentment and your hope in humanity is rekindled when you visit this ashram. You can just sit at Mother’s tomb and meditate and feel like she is with you at that moment. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kolkata itinerary 5 days.

  • The austerity of the place speaks volumes about the mother and the sisters still staying there. The place is spic and span and has a divine aura around it. The mother's room is still well maintained, so is her clothes and other belongings which are hardly anything. You also get an opportunity to view the Nobel award of the mother. Being a simple place, it is easy to miss from the main road, but you will be spot on if you follow the directions on google maps.

  • Very tranquil place. The few people we talked to were very kind. The energy of the space was calm and peaceful. Very glad to have visited here

  • Excellent exemple of humbleness and compassion. Spending two weeks helping along the sisters of charity in their centers was a great experience to break judgment, boundaries and understand the importance of human being above any issue or idea. I recommend to anyone, these are universal values.

  • We don't have any words to describe her work, only She can feel... And we can only feel when we do at least 1% of that... The feeling of giving is an emans Joy and it's priceless...

  • Being there was a moment of grace.... And since we had a priest along, we celebrated mass at the tomb. Surely feel blessed. ­čÖĆ­čĹ╝­čÖĆ
