Situated in Fatehpur Sikri beside the palace of Jodhaa Bai and opposite Birbal’s house is the Lower Haramsara. The original purpose of the Lower Haramsara is a debatable one as some historians believe that it was used as a stable for horses, elephants and camels while others state that the Lower Haramsara was used to accommodate the maids of the royal harem.

The building is made up of a large rectangular courtyard that is contained on three sides by a dome held up by columns. The entire structure of the Lower Haramsara is made of red sandstone with delicate floral patterns carved on both the interior and exterior. The columns of the Lower Haramsara have a combination of Indian and Islamic designs.
