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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • This is a must go place while in Calcutta. This place has divinity and is an example of human greatness and love. In your silence while visiting Mothers House, you will feel her divine presence and feel piousness all around here. Has a museum on Mother's life, has her room and her tomb. A must go again.

  • Interesting museum, but they closed the bedroom before closing time and told us to come back the next day. Why have an official closing time if you’re not going to use it? It’s not an option return later in my case, so I’ll never know if it’s worth visiting. The museum contained largely the same info you’ll find on Wikipedia, and photographs you can find online as well.

  • The Missionaries of Charity (Latin: Missionariarum a Caritate) is a Roman Catholic (Latin Church) religious congregation established in 1950 by Mother Teresa, now known in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta. In 2012 it consisted of over 4,500 religious sisters. Members of the order designate their affiliation using the order's initials, "M.C." A member of the congregation must adhere to the vows of chastity, poverty, obedience, and the fourth vow, to give "wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor."Today, the order consists of both contemplative and active branches in several countries. Missionaries care for those who include refugees, former prostitutes, the mentally ill, sick children, abandoned children, lepers, people with AIDS, the aged, and convalescent. They have schools run by volunteers to educate street children and run soup kitchens as well as other services according to the community needs. These services are provided, without charge, to people regardless of their religion or social status.
