Mother Teresa's Motherhouse information
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 with her modest camp bed and an unexplained framed airline route-map. The site is around 15 minutes' walk from Sudder St, walk along Alimuddin St, then two minutes' south. It's in the second alley to the right (after Hotel Heaven).
