Palace on Wheels train

The Palace on Wheels was introduced to promote tourism in Rajasthan. The carpeted floors, the intricately patterned walls, and the comfortable furniture remind us of traditional decor - a fitting accompaniment to the regal architecture of Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, and Jaisalmer.

This train contains 14 passenger coaches, each named after a famous place in Rajasthan to immerse us further in Indian culture. Each coach contains 3 cabins with their own colour scheme. In the cabins, there are twin beds, as well as a desk, and a lounge within the coach. All cabins on board the train are air-conditioned and mineral water is also available to passengers throughout the journey. There are a large selection of magazines and newspapers to peruse over breakfast - so you don't have to miss out on a thing.

To further enhance the feeling of staying in a travelling hotel, there is a small spa as well as a gym on board, keeping you refreshed and exercised as the train travels on to its next breathtaking destination. The two restaurant cars, the Maharaja and the Maharani, contain both a bar with seating for 20, and a restaurant to seat 40, and offer both the local specialities of Rajasthan, as well as the wider range of Indian cuisine.

Indian 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.
