One feels mental peace. It is always advised to visit quite often when you feel disturbed in life. Mother Teresa is not just bound to Christianity only.

This opportunity should not be missed in Kolkata, but please be respectful and be prepared to have your emotions attacked in the orphanage. The initial part of the visit concentrates on Mother Teresa. These is a life size statute of her - she was so small. There is her tomb to pay your respects. There is her room - they will not let you take photos but you can look in - there is a photo at the bottom of the stairs, so you can get a photo of a photo. I was surprised by her room - I thought she lived in a hovel. This is not the case. Her room is very simply furnished, but it is not unpleasant. Then comes the visit to the orphanage. This is heart wrenching. Children come up to you and hold your hand - are they hoping you will take them away with you? They are clearly well cared for, and well dressed.

It is the tomb of Mother Teresa, who passed away on 5th September 1997.. Her tomb is a place of worship, where people of all faith, religion, culture and region come to prayer to her.. The MC sisters here are very helpful.

You would not know it is there unless shown where. There is no glitz and no obvious tourist outlook. There is a small chapel which also houses a small museum and the tomb of the great lady. You also can view her simple room.
There was an air of calm and reverence there, no doubt totally in keeping with the ethos of Mother Teresa, but nothing like the impact she had in Kolkata and the influence and fame she had in the world. It was all very humbling.
