 Details about Mother Teresa’s Tomb


Mother Teresa’s Tomb, located at 54A, A.J.C. Bose Road, is right in the heart of the Metropolitan City of Kolkata, in the Archdiocese of Calcutta.


The tomb is on the ground floor of one of the three buildings that comprise the Mother house of the Missionaries of Charity, an international religious congregation founded by Mother Teresa in 1950.

The Mother house has been the home to Mother Teresa and her Sisters from February 1953 to the present. It is here that the Mother lived, prayed, worked, and it is from this headquarters that she guided her religious family spread across the world.


 It is from here that she “went home to God” on September 5, 1997 and here her body was laid to rest on September 13, 1997.

Besides being a Mother house (Generelate) of the Missionaries of Charity, with a large number of professed sisters, to the present day this building is also a Novitiate, that is, a house of formation for the candidates to the order.


In this sacred place, all are invited to encounter God’s love through Mother Teresa, who lived fully the words of Jesus Christ that have been engraved on her tomb, “LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED YOU”. Everyone is also invited to carry His love to all those they meet, witnessing to the truth that Mother Teresa proclaimed with her word and deeds: “God still loves the world through you and through me today”.


 A few of them are noted below by way of example:


“Holy place to understand the value of life and the love of God.”


“This makes me fall in love with Jesus all over again and consecrate myself to serve Him with all that I am .”


“Let us follow the foot prints of Holy Mother.”


“Mother! I feel so privileged to have existed in this world when you were here. I wish I can love my fellow human being by at least a fraction of your grand love and compassion.”


“Heart touching to see what Mother has done for India and the world. A great sense of inspiration to all.”


“A special place to visit. Very moving and amazing to see Mother’s mission continuing.”


“It is very, very hard to believe and feel the greatness of simpleness of a simple but great soul. The real Godliness.”


“I felt a holy touch and the warmth of the love of God when I entered this place. Praise God for this Blessed servant.”


“If Gandhi freed from British rule, Mother freed us from poverty and egoism with love and affection.”


“Spirit of Mother Teresa, lead me with you in the footsteps of Jesus.”


“No one can be like you. You use the light to the poor and needy. You are not dead. You still live in many hearts.


“Reflecting on the joy and life of Bl. M. Teresa inspires me seek Jesus in all people. To give Him my heart and allow Him to use me at home, at work, at any part of my day.”


“We follow Mother’s advice, small things with great love.”


“The spirit of Mother is sure to inspire us to journey from culture of fragmentation to the culture of communion, from culture of indifference to the culture of compassion.”


“Simplicity is where the true beauty is and this is one of the finest examples amongst the worldly affairs”


“As I enter the room I feel like I am in heaven. It has a quiet voice of God.”


“I arrived a place, where a true Christian lived and witnessed Christ Jesus. Really it is a memorable day for me.”


“Such a blessed life. There are surely no limits to what God can achieve through a truly devoted heart.”
