Shopping in Agra
Agra is well known for marble items inlaid with colored stones. Sadar bazaar and Taj Ganj is full of shops and emporia selling handicrafts and inlaid items. Prices are according to the workmanship and not the size of the item. The other popular items are rugs, leather and gemstones. You can visit Shilpgram which is located one km away from the eastern gate of the Taj Mahal. It has crafts from all over India, which are of good quality, aimed for foreign tourists.
Just like any other tourist spot in India, shopping in Agra too involves the art of haggling. Most shops will offer you good deals if you are a little tactful. If you want to enjoy this art just smile and quote a low price and you may get a good deal. If shopping is something you do not enjoy, just visit the big emporia and get the best hassle free, though at a higher price.
