I visited in December 2017 and bought two lovely pieces- unfortunately we had some problems getting the pieces past customs in the Uk, but Mr Mohammad went out of his way to ensure that the pieces were posted back from India again, and ensured that all costs were covered. The pieces are of excellent quality and the customer services was also excellent throughout. I’d recommend this place to anyone, and thanks to Mr Mohammad again for his efforts.

If you have a good guide for the Taj Mahal... you are in good hands in very good hands! They also help you to make good pictures from you and the Taj. Afterwards they will push you to one of this Shops...we're you could buy Souvenirs. We are here in India - its like a market. If you accept the price in the Shops... you made it wrong and you lose a lot of money. So if you are nice...and talk to the people with a smile you get a good price. We got it... so that's why I can say they are okay. You have to deal with them - then you also have a nice evening. Great Store... with the big selection. Try your luck, it will come.

We were here during our Agra tour. The shop is located very near to Taj Mahal. They showed us various marble works and other handicrafts. The price seemed too expensive compared to the quality of things. Also, the marble of all products did not look genuine. We chose not to buy from here.

Dear visitor first of all I would like to request you kindly remove this review from My Trip Advisor because you are not visited my marble Cottage there are several shops for marble handicraft in Agra which is similar to my shop so most of the Travellers from the different countries and from various part of India did confused because they don't know the exact name of the shop like as you write in your review that the shop is located very near to Taj Mahal I would like to clarify we are very far from the Taj Mahal,not very close, another thing is I have seen all my invoices there is no person like you who visited my store if you have visited my store kindly show the proof and I would like to request to TripAdvisor kindly remove this review as soon as possible from my property from my TripAdvisor reviews Centre I would like to request to the lady who write about my shop or either this lady she is a competetor,she has rwrote this on behalf of the competition in the market of the business so I would like to request to others Travellers who read this,that this lady haven't been my shop because they didn't know exactly what she write and to whom they want to to write so please please I request you that your one negative review makes my shops down and your good feedback it's going to make my shop up so we always need a good review just because we trust om our quality we trust on our prices and we hope to give as well as in the future these qualities and services so I would like to request to TripAdvisor kindly remove this review from my management center .....and take action..
thank you

The folks at Marble Cottage were incredibly friendly, helpful, and professional. They gave me a history of the stonework and how it is prevalent in artwork and stonework in Agra and at the Taj Mahal. I bought a piece that was beautiful and it was shipped to the USA promptly and in good shape. Recommend to anyone looking for good stone.
