Shilpgram – A Shopper’s Paradise

Shilpgram, is a place in Agra which brings in artisans and craftsmen who specialise in unique and ethnic handicraft under a single roof. 

This tradition of making handicraft is limited to a set of artisans and has been handed over for generations. It is an effort to motivate these artisans and keep the tradition from perishing in this fast paced era.

Shilpgram is a crafts village, an open air emporium which showcases various artefacts which may not be found in the regular markets of Agra. It is situated just about half a kilometre from the Eastern gate of Taj Mahal. 

This folk village is run by the Uttar Pradesh government and is constructed in a sprawling 11.5 acre area. One can witness superior, fine and intricate craftsmanship at this place. 

You can shop for leather goods, carpets, rugs, fine embroidered suits, sarees, brassware, lamps, metalware, fine peitra dura work, and carpets. It has a refreshment stall, where you can grab a bite in between shopping.

Shilpgram is extremely famous not only in India but across the globe. The Taj Mahotsav is held each year at this venue. Artisans from all over the country exhibit their work at the stalls. 

This 10-day festive melange, displays many magnificent performances, ranging from classical dance, fusion dance, instrumental, vocal renditions to sufi music. The handicrafts can be bought at reasonable and authentic prices, and you can be assured, value for money.

One can enjoy the traditional cuisines from across the country. It is a delight for foodies, where you get to taste dishes that are typical of a place. There are many rides for the children to enjoy too. Elephant rides and camel rides add a lot of fun to this carnival.

Address: Telipara, Tajganj, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Timings: 6 am to 7 pm

Since a landmark in itself, Shilpgram is easily accessible. Carry an umbrella since the stalls are lined in the open.
