I'm an American Buddhist monk living in Mysore. I have a few days free and wanted to explore Kolkata. Mostly I want to visit Mother Teresa's place. I'll be arriving at the airport. Can anyone suggest an inexpensive two-day itinerary?
Thanks all.

First, you can get a cheap hotel in Kolkata via MakeMyTrip or anything similar. Assuming you have 1 night and 2 days in hand this you can follow:

1. Day #1: In the morning, visit Kalighat Temple, South Kolkata. The crowd should be less in early morning. You said about Mother, so in Kalighat you have 'Nirmal Hriday Mother Teresa's Home for the Dying Destitutes'. So if you want you can visit that. There are few good sweet shops like 'Balaram Mullick & Radharaman Mullick' or 'Ganguram' nearby. You can visit one and have your breakfast (if it's still morning).

You should visit Mother House and you will get the opening hours in http://motherteresa.org/03_learn/pil...resa-tomb.html. Based on that plan for it. It's in A.J.C Bose road and from there, you can surely go to Park Street to spend your evening. Park Street, Chowringhee, New Market area are the best places to roam around in the evening.

So spend your time and have dinner and go back to your hotel.

Day #2: Ready for early chinese breakfast? Visit Tiretta Bazaar, Sun Yat Sen Street .

But you have to be present there by 6 AM. After breakfast, visit St. Paul’s Cathedral. There are many options to visit this day.
1. Victoria Memorial Hall.
2. Indian Museum.
These are all nearby. So you can just take bus to go here and there. Take a tram from esplanade tram depot to College Street (if that is still running - there might be metro work going on, not sure). When I was in school, I used to hear, if you don't find a book in College Street, the book probably doesn't exist. The weather would be too hot in Summer. Go for a Daab Sharbat (coconut water) in Paramount. In the after noon, coffee in Indian coffee house. Take a cab to either princep ghat or fairlie place to enjoy the sunset on Ganges. If you are in fairlie you can just book a ticket to the launch ride. From fairlie to howrah station and back.

If you share your food preferences, I could suggest good food joints.

Cheers!
Darjeeling, Kuari Pass Winter trek, Tawang-Dirang-Bomdila
