About the walk

Agra is mainly known for some major industries like the footwear industry, jewellery industry, tourism industry, etc. Their export system runs all over the world. But apart from these, there are a lot of small and traditional businesses like the kite factory, thread factory, wooden utensils factory, zardozi arts, etc. They have been running for centuries by some old families who live in Agra.
Whenever we walk or go through the old markets of Agra, we can see very small shops that include kite making, thread making, zardozi art, and marble work, but when we enter these shops, we can see huge galleries where workers carry out their work.
During the walk, we will explore the working system of these small factories that have silently been serving the city for generations. You will bear witness to the fast handiwork here along with the myriad skills.

This guided tour is free.
