Everyone has heard of Mother Theresa and it was great to visit her house where she did so much good for the people of Kolkatta. Her tomb is a grand marble construct, for more ostentatious then she'd have ever wanted herself. Her room is still there laid out as it was in her life. Small museum as well.

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.
