Magniﬁcent palaces and forts are waiting to be discovered on this Indian rail adventure
The Palace on Wheels transports our guests on an odyssey that begins and ends in the colourful and hectic city of Delhi, where ancient forts, mosques and bazaars meet twenty-first century shopping malls, gourmet restaurants and a host of fascinating museums and monuments.
From here, this remarkable train takes our guests on a voyage that highlights India's remarkable heritage, culture and scenic landscapes. From the stunning and historic forts at Jaipur and Chittorgarh, to the tiger-country jungle terrain of Sawai Madhopur and Ranthambore National Park, every destination on the route taken by the Palace on Wheels is truly stunning. This incredible tour culminates in a visit to Agra's most famous site: the iconic Taj Mahal. This seventeenth-century white-marble mausoleum, built in memory of the third wife of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, is one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and unmissable for the sublime beauty of its Mughal architecture.
