A debatable structure beside Jodhbai’s Palace in Fatehpur Sikri. Some says it was a horse and camel stable, other believed that it was used as accommodation for royal harem maids. A red sandstone structure with floral pattern carved on interior and exterior walls.

Very picturesque part in the heart of the Fatehpur Sikri complex. Definitely recommend a guide or audio guide to be able to appreciate the history of each area of the ghost city.

It's easy to imagine a bustling city with such a large open square - the carvings are absolutely beautiful.
