prices here are much less than other places in North India. As Agra is a big leather centre you are bound to get a good deal in the city.

It seems the street vendor selling “Itar” (a common Urdu word used for pure form of perfume) is of immense interest to tourists. These local perfumes are made out of flowers and can be had in variety of scents like lotus, magnolia, poppy, rose, etc.

Agra is also famous for its carpets and Dhurries. You are bound to be escorted by a salesman to a nearby factory to see the process of creation of these items. The city has been a centre of this art of making carpets and Dhurries since the Mughal days. There is a wide range of traditional and modern designs at display.
Main areas for shopping for all these items are Sadar Bazar, Kinari Bazaar and Munro Road.

“Zardoji”, the art of embroidery with cotton and silk threads is another expertise available in this town. Free hand sketches are converted into beautiful pieces of design by carefully employing cotton and silk threads to create a piece of desired thickness, by artisans in the city.
