Kolkata: Private House of Mother Teresa & Church Tour

2. Kolkata: Private House of Mother Teresa & Church Tour

After pickup from your accommodation in Kolkata, you’ll head to St Andrew’s Church. This was the only Scottish church in Kolkata and was completed in 1818. Listen as your guide tells stories of the steeple, which was higher than that of St John’s Church and caused some controversy at the time. Next up you’ll visit St Paul’s Cathedral, the first Episcopal Church in the eastern world. The cathedral took 8 years to build and was finished in 1847. Note its Gothic-style stained glass windows and frescoes in the Florentine Renaissance style.

The cemetery covers 8 acres of space and contains graves belonging to prominent British citizens and high officials of the East India Company. Finally visit Mother’s House, the former residence of Mother Teresa. The building remains the headquarters of the Missionaries of Charity, the organization founded by Mother Teresa. Visit a museum with Mother Teresa’s belongings and see the sisters of the charity at work, before paying your respects at the tomb of Our Angel of Mercy.

Kolkata Morning Culture Tour- Chasing The Sun

3. Kolkata Morning Culture Tour- Chasing The Sun

This is a one of a kind tour that follows a story titled, "Chasing The Sun". An experience to witness this vibrant city coming to life as the sun rises over its bustling streets. We'll begin our journey in the early hours of the morning, watching as Kolkata awakens from its slumber. From the serene banks of the Hooghly River to the bustling markets and vibrant neighborhoods, you'll witness the city's rich culture and heritage unfold before your eyes. A special visit to a historic food joint for a delicious traditional breakfast and sweets. Meet your guide at the entrance of Victoria Memorial. The day begins with a fascinating glimpse into Kolkata's morning hustle. On one side, we'll witness the city's industrious spirit in South Kolkata as we stroll past locals engaging in their morning jog amidst sprawling greenery and the majestic Victoria Memorial providing a striking backdrop. On the flip side, we'll dive into the vibrant chaos of the flower market under the colossal Howrah Bridge where trade intertwines seamlessly with religious rituals at a nearby ghat. Get to visit to an Indian wrestling ring. Next, we peek into the heart of Bengali living. In Kolkata, the word "para" means a locality or neighborhood which holds significant meaning. Your para defines more than just your address; it molds your entire mindset. Our journey takes us deep into the heart of a 300-year-old North Kolkata para, where we'll immerse ourselves in the daily rituals and culture of its residents. Prepare for a unique experience as we visit a 200-year-old eatery, indulging in an authentic breakfast dish that's been savored for generations (vegan friendly) After breakfast, we dive into Central and East Kolkata's urban labyrinth, bustling with vibrant markets and a myriad of colors. Our journey explores cosmopolitan neighborhoods and bustling markets, including the oldest Chinatown of India, a marketplace renowned for its spices and vegetables and a visit to Kolkata's grandest mosque. Get ready for an enchanting mix of cultures and experiences in this dynamic part of the city—a haven for street photographers. Finally, after a day of chasing the sun, we find solace at Mother Teresa's house, pausing for reflection amidst the city's chaos. Please note we use public transport for commuting.
