Nirmal Hirday Pure Heart is located on J.C. Bose Road, next to the famous Kali Temple in Kalighat. Established by Mother Teresa in 1952, this hospice is engaged in curing and providing shelter to the sick, destitute and the dying people in the region. The building was previously an abandoned temple of Goddess Kali.

To convert the dilapidated building into a free hospital for the poor, Mother Teresa took the help of Indian officials. Do pay a visit to this place to learn about the life and great works of Mother Teresa. Nirmal Hirday served as home for Mother Teresa for 44 years, and after her demise, she was buried in this building.
