The Mother House of the Missionaries of Charity is a place well worth seeking out. It’s the convent where Mother Teresa is buried. For those who like a museum, Science City and the Indian Museum are well worth checking out.
Best time to visit: Visit Kolkata in summer, and you will experience hot and humid conditions. So head there during the winter months, and you’ll find the weather to be far more favourable. October to February is the month to aim for.
