Mother House, Kolkata Reviews

  • 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.

  • This is a beautiful place. Located in North Calcutta. People should go and visit this place. It gives you positive vibes as soon as you enter this place. You get to see mother Teresa's room which is very unique. Must visit if you're here in Kolkata.

  • The beautiful home of Mother Teresa in the city which now houses several nuns who have dedicated their lives to social service. A museum curating Mother's life, Mother's tomb, a church, a kitchen and numerous quarters for sisters. Beautiful interiors

  • a religious place for sure.. a shrine worth visiting.. and a service worth attending.. u can also request for special services for certain sects and languages... very accomodating and calm place.

  • A must visit place with your family and friends here. What other place can be more sacred than the place of Saint Teresa, previously known as Mother! Location, ambience, transportation availability and of course, the serenity of this place is beyond my writing skills!
