Legendary Elephant Quarter, the stables, a building which is dome shaped served as the quarters of the royal elephants, is situated nearby the Zenana Enclosure. These stables are ancient monuments, constructed as long structure with resting places for the royal elephants.

There are a total of eleven domed tall chambers, out of which the center one is particularly decorated and big. This was supposed to be for the musicians and the connected band troupes to perform the talents during celebrations involving royal elephants. The metal hooks, which are used to knot the elephants, in the interior roof is still visible. The mahouts enter the elephant compartments through manholes located at the rear of each hall.
