- The building known an Birbal’s house is a two storeyed structure, complex in its arrangements and elaborate in its architectural ornamentation.
- The ground storey is made up of four rooms and two porches, while the upper storey is made up of two rooms and open terraces enclosed by screens.
- The upper rooms are roofed by cupolas while the porches have pyramidal roofs, all of which are constructed on a modified form of the double dome in order to keep the interior cool.
- The chief attraction is the treatment of the exterior, particularly the rich character of the eave brackets.
- Such bracket supports are common in most of the secular structures in Fatehpur Sikri, but they have employed most liberally and designed and executed most elaborately in Birbal’s House.
