Shopping in Agra

Agra is a complete shopper's paradise and platters so much to try that a true bargain hunter starts puffing and panting. Agra has been a marvelous commercial center and is a fantastic home to scores of handicraft industries for many ages and it is due to the dexterous craftsmen that despite suffered from immense bloodbath at the time of partition, it again emerged as a sole producer of laudable handicrafts. While sauntering in the narrow lanes of Agra in Uttar Pradesh, India your eyes will be gawked at the appealing soft stone inlay work and marble-made handicrafts. As the Mughals were huge patrons of arts and crafts, Empress Noor Jahan showed special curiosity and therefore appeared as the talented performer herself of Zari embroidery work. You can buy some beautiful miniatures of marbles that consist of mementos and icons of Hindu deities.
