Amongst various stone crafts, marble is one of the most cherished crafting stone. Agra, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, has been a centre for marble carving ever since the Taj Mahal was built. Infact, tiny replicas of the Taj are a huge hit with the foreigners who have Agra on the top of their places-to-visit-in-India. The craftsmen of this city particularly specialize in carving delicate jaalis - floral and geometrical. The intricacy of this lattice work speaks volumes about their dedication, patience and fine workmanship. It is so gorgeous that most certainly it will make you skip a beat!
Flowers, leaves and animals are the regular patterns seen in carving but the craftsmen do make an attempt to try out newer products and combine different materials with stone to evolve their design and sensibility.
