Mother Teresa’s Motherhouse

A Must See… a true pilgrimage for some !

A regular flow of mostly Christian pilgrims visit the Missionaries of Charity’s ‘Motherhouse’ to pay homage at Mother Teresa’s large, sober tomb. A small adjacent museum room displays Teresa’s worn sandals and battered enamel dinner bowl. Located upstairs is the room where she worked and slept from 1953 to 1997, preserved in all its simplicity.

From Sudder St, walk around 15 minutes along Alimuddin St, then two minutes’ south. It’s in the second alley to the right (after Hotel Heaven).
