Shopping in Uttar Pradesh

Lucknow , the former seat of the Nawabs of Avadh produces an extensive range of gold and silver plated articles in a multitude of patterns. Lucknow bidri, abounds in fish motifs, flora & fauna and vine leaf patterns.Farrukhabad has always been well known for its cotton printing and it still maintains that tradition.

Moradabad is famous for utensils, both utility and ornamental, made of white metal and electropalted brass and copper. The engraving is either sada (plain) or sia kalam.

Rampur surahis (water pots) are noted for their uniform green- blue glazes with plain surfaces, the base being prepared from red clay. Excellent water containers are made in Meerut and Hapur which stand out with their striking designs of flowing lines and floral patterns, often capped by wired shaped spouts.

Vrindavan near Mathura has marble as well as alabaster products. Some objects are embossed with semiprecious stone or synthetic gems.

Varanasi has been well known from time immemorial for its silk saris, brocade and brassware but do you know Varanasi, is the first city in India for the multitude of its cast and sculptured mythological images and emblemata in brass and copper as well as household utensils. In recent years Mirzapur has also emerged as one of the important brass industries in the state.

Agra, the City of the magnificent Taj Mahal is famous primarily for its marble and soft stone inlay work & for its carpet industry. It was in the days of Akbar that carpet-makers from Iran were settled in Agra and it continued to be one of the leading centres in Persian carpet-making. The Industry also developed in Bhadoi and Mirzapur where it continues to flourish today

Also Sadar Bazar. Tajganj, Kinari Bazar, Munro Road, Pratap Pura, Gwalior Road which brush each other are the main bazaars of Agra towards the south. It is advisable not to heed to the persuasions of touts at any of these markets. 

This area is generally full of life as all tourist related services, hotels, showrooms, etc. are in abundance here. It is also adjoining the cantonment area, but slightly away from the main Agra railway station which is towards the north. Take with you some sweets which are rare in taste like the Petha and Gazak. Should you prefer some snacky item with a bit of spice ask for Dalmoth.

So go ahead, shop to your heartís delight and take home an exquisite, piece made in India , just for you.

It is totally free.
