Images of Kolkata

First, some typical Kolkata street scenes:

This is the Kalighat Kalika, a major temple to Kali, the Indian goddess of chaos and destruction
This is Victoria Memorial Hall, a memorial to Queen Victoria from when Kolkata was the capital of British India

Some photos from the Mother House, the headquarters of Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity:

Mother Teresa's tomb, being shown to us by Sister Prema, the current Superior of the Missionaries of Charity

Finally, some videos of the cultural program we had at dinner last night:
