    Myself and my partner bought this beautiful marble table from this wonderful place.

    We were made to feel so welcome and was even lucky enough to see one of the artists at work. The time and craftsmanship which goes into every item is unbelievable.

    We met Rahul and his Father who were lovely people. Rahul ensure that our table got to us securely and safely.

    I’m so honoured to own a piece of history and cannot wait for it to be displayed in my home for many many years

    this was an interesting enough performance, but expensive at about AU$70 (We booked for our tour guide so no doubt he got a cut… Not sure how much it is directly) for a show that lasts about an hour to 1.5 hours. Interesting show, and it is sung in Hindi, but to keep up with the spoken bits it has headsets at each chair that have 20 languages, we had English language, and while the system works in terms of Listening to a translation the volume made it a bit hard to hear. If you’re not too worried about spending a couple of bucks on a night out, I’d recommend you do this so you can just tick it off as something done, interesting but it’s no Phantom of the Opera.

    Very highly suggested.

    Great hospitality and professionalism!
    We stumbled upon the place by mistake and it was a great experience! We have been presented the history of the place and work. We had a tour of the workshop and we have seen the beautiful unique pieces of art, one of a kind. It was a great experience and the quality of the handcrafted art is extremely great!
    I recommend it for everyone visiting Agra!

    Midway between the ornate gateway and the masjid at the Taj Mahal complex, on the western periphery of the complex, is the Jal Mahal. This is one of two pavilions built at either end of a water channel bisecting the charbagh gardens of the tomb. Jal Mahal houses the Taj Mahal Museum, a very small selection of exhibits. Some pertain to the Taj itself: layouts, including a beautiful 19th century one on cloth, a few paintings, mostly from the 20th century, farmans regarding the purchase and construction of the Taj, and some details about the semi-precious stones used in it); others, like weapons, coins, and jade or celadon ware, are more generally Mughal.

    Entry to the Taj Museum is free.

    It is spiritual place with mesuem yoga and meditation facility at the same place. Those who like peace and silence can visit this place. It is very close to the Taj

    This is a beautiful place to visit and buy some souvenirs while traveling to Agra! They keep everything from gems , jewels, marble stuff , Zari works to music instruments!! I luv the life size statues kept outside the shops as my daughter found it very intriguing! U can see the craftsman working on Zari inside the shop . It is a lost art and shop is trying to restore and preserve this dying art! Bargain if u can 😬☺️👏🏻👌🏻

    Touseef International cannot be trusted. I bought a cabinet from him that he shipped to me but the item was damaged. Thousands of lame excuses later, I decided to drop the guy and have it repaired by someone that can be trusted. There are many vendors in Agra that sell high quality products for a more affordable price and with better services. Better stay away from this one.

    Like many others, we were also directed here by our cabbie. We went in with a pinch of salt, but ultimately it was good.

    You are always free to choose whether you want to actually buy the stuff there or not. We took our time, and though the sellers insisted, we did not spend on anything we felt was not worth our time and money. We opted for a beautiful sculpted plate that depicts Agra's (and India's) star : the Taj Mahal.

    The shoes that we purchased have also lived up to some hard conditions, and the sarees are also good. We would actually recommend this place.

    PS : The shops inside are all air conditioned, and you can come out feeling fresh. Just be sure to buy at your own interest, and not at the whims of the sellers.
