Mother Teresa’s Tomb and Museum at Mother House of the Missionaries of Charity


Mother Teresa was buried on the ground floor of the Mother House on 13th September, 1997. Her tomb has become a place of pilgrimage and quiet meditation to people of all creeds. The site of the tomb is a place of profound silence and peace despite the persistent noise of passing Calcutta traffic. Mother's tomb is truly a reflection of her life, that we must be able to pray and contemplate even in the midst of noise and  distractions.


​Adjacent to Mother's tomb is a small exhibition opened in 2005, entitled 'Mother Teresa's Life, Spirit  and Message'.  The exhibition includes many of Mother Teresa's handwritten letters,  spiritual exhortations and her few personal belongings - sari, sandals, crucifix.
