Just off AJC Bose Road and a short walk from Mother Teresa Sarani (yes, a road named after her), is the Blessed Missions of Charity Motherhouse.

Marked by a small wooden name sign and guarded by 2 soldiers I arrived at the charity.

Though it is a pilgrimage destination for those that visit Kolkata (and also a popular place to volunteer), it was extremely peaceful, and there were only about 2 other visitors when I went.

After entering the initial doorway, the corridor opened up with a few potted plants, a statue of Mary, and also a statue of Mother Teresa.

I then proceeded to enter the small chapel in the compound to view the tomb of Mother.

Unlike the Taj Mahal or other massive mausoleum monuments, Mother Teresa’s tomb was housed inside a very average looking facility.
