Welcome to Mother House

Mother House

This humble and touching temple to Mother Theresa's life and work in downtown Kolkata is well worth a visit. Upstairs is a small museum, full of affecting and interesting displays; and you even have a chance to see Blessed Theresa's bedroom, preserved exactly as it was when she lived in the building. Not so much an 'attraction' as a deeply emotional and inspiring insight into a life of self-sacrifice and devotion, a visit to Mother House makes a fine counterpoint to more traditional tourist pursuits.
