Shopping in Agra

Shopping can be both an exciting as well as taxing experience in Agra. There is a lot one can pick up in handicrafts, but beware of the touts who lead you into shops that overcharge and pay a hefty commission. It is best to go by yourself, and bargain hard. The main shopping area is the Sadar Bazaar, besides Kinari Bazar, Gwalior Road, Mahatma Gandhi Road and Munro Road. The Taj complex also has emporia of several state governments. These offer a good range of items at fixed prices. You should not let your credit card out of sight, and avoid having goods shipped later, since many people have been cheated on them.

You will not be able to resist the marble inlay work and other local handicrafts. Remember to check out shoes and bags. Agra is a big exporter of leather and leather products to the west and you get to pick up some real bargains here.

A trip to Agra is incomplete if one bids adieu to the city before buying the famous ''Petha'' and ''Gazak'' among sweets or a small replica of the famous Taj Mahal. The Panchi Petha located at the station road varieties of Petha and Gazak. Those who are willing to spend a few more bucks should opt for handicraft products, leather work, footwear, carpets, jewellery, etc.
