Bought an overpriced marble frame under relentless pressure from salesman when tired after full day seeing Taj Mahal. After two months picked up frame and it fell apart.

Terrific insight into how they did the marble inlays at the Taj Mahal so well worth a visit. You'll be gently pressured into buying something but ask to see all the rooms with things for sale before buying anything. We weren't which was disappointing. Items...More
