Although the nuns were very welcoming to the many pilgrims of a number of faiths as well as slightly grubby looking tourists, the house was still clearly very much a working church, charity and school. Mother Teresa's sparse bedroom room has been preserved as it was at her death and there is an exhibition of Mother's letters, photographs and awards pinned to old classroom cork boards in another room. ...
