Mother Teresa was officially declared a saint on 4 September.
Pope Francis led the canonisation ceremony at Vatican City. While crowds thronged to St Peter's Square to attend the Holy Mass of canonisation, the many who couldn't make it to Rome tuned in to their television to watch the ceremony.
Hundreds of pilgrims gathered in Kolkata ahead of the 4 September canonisation event to pay homage at the spot where the Nobel Laureate was laid to rest.
The tomb is located in the premises of the Bose Road headquarters of the Missionaries of Charity - a place Mother Teresa called home from February 1953 till her death in 1997.
The 'mother house' and the tomb were decorated with flowers, photographs and candles to mark the historic day. Here is a look at the visitors at the tomb of Saint Teresa of Calcutta on the day of her canonisation:
