We were in a party on a guided tour with our Indian guide when we visited, and shown the making of these marble and Gemstones from what appeared to us, slave labour. We were then escorted into the showrooms where we were given drinks and shown how to look for the genuine marble articles by shineing a light through the... More

I arrived at this place on 2015-1-29, and ended up purchasing a $2700 inlaid marble coffee table top. It was gorgeous. Well, after 10 weeks I never received the top and after discovering that all the email address bounced and phone numbers were disconnected, had to file a claim with the credit card company. 4 days later I got a...

I will validate previous reviewers impressions of this place. I will admit that I was tired when led to this last stop on our tour. The tour of the Taj was so wonderful, I let my guard down when taken to this "handicrafts exhibit." It was interesting and the work was beautiful but way out of my budget. I also... More

In June I purchased a Chess board and stand from this company. They are very high pressure sales people that try to get you to buy everything at very high inflated prices. I had them agree to ship the item to Canada for July 15th however it never arrived. I filed a chargeback and then the company sent it to... More

My two small jewellery boxes that cost me a ridiculous $120 AUD are both chipped and one of them is so broken that it almost seems like the chalk like copies they showed us at the showroom as scams on the road. To be completely honest, I felt like I was almost MADE to to buy the 2 boxes and... More

I am certain this shop also goes by "Marble Art Palace" as that is the name with the same number as above listed on my receipt for the highly overpriced table top I purchased. My husband and I were on a much smaller tour and later realized we were being "wined and dinned." I will never purchase anything in another... More

DO NOT buy from UP Marble Crafts Palace on Fatehabad Road!! They only show you the first big room with their most expensive items! Thinking this was the only room and only items they have to offer, my husband and I bought a 12x12 table top marble plate as a gift for our 1 year anniversary. The sales people said... More

Don't buy anything at this shop! Tourst scam! As others have warned global tourists, this shop tries to cheat you to the max! My worst experience was that, like others, I did not receive the item I orderd to be delivered to my home outside India (Japan). The English-speaking sales emphasized that they would use FedEx or something similar to... More

If you are on a day trip tour of Agra, you WILL end up here...Guaranteed. After visiting some poor souls stuck under a stairwell working on marble creations (supposedly the descendants of the the Taj creators!) you will be needlessly herded into the first of 2 display rooms. They will demonstrate their wares, postage techniques, and scraps of musty torn... More
