About Palace on Wheels
The Palace on Wheels, the most luxurious holiday train, began its operation in October 1982. As per its name, the Palace on Wheels, provides a life and journey that is reminiscent of the royal kings and nawabs. The atmosphere and the treatment on the whole together take the passengers back into a time when luxurious lifestyle of the kings distincted them from the common people. Every need - basic or luxury- was available before the kings could even blink their eyes once. Today, the Palace on Wheels recreates the magic of this bygone era for the tourists who wish to experience firsthand the royal treatment accorded to the royal people.

One of the ten best trains in the world, The Palace on Wheels takes tourists to explore the royal splendour of the Rajputs in the state of Rajasthan for seven nights and eight days. The luxury train boasts of 14 coaches named after former Rajput states - Kota, Jaipur, Udaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Alwar, Sirohi, Kishangarh, Bundi, Dungarpur, Bharatpur, Jhalawar and Dholpur.

As a consequence, tourists get to enjoy all the splendour of past combined with modern technological advancements.
