Palace on Wheels or shall we say, ‘Paradise on Wheels’!! This train is an exquisite and beautiful one with an everlasting experience. The train offers tours that include visits to heritage and culture of the splendid cities of Rajasthan. Nevertheless, the key attraction of an eight days tour is Jaipur, the capital city, the first stoppage of the tour.


One can easily feel the grandeur of the Maharajas who once lived here. The train itself is a great place to cherish and reflects the Rajput hospitality at its best. The experience is one-of-its-kind as one can see and adore so many diversities of various cities within few days. There is an opportunity to visit the beautiful monuments and palaces of erstwhile royal cities of Rajasthan too.


The train started on 26th January 1982, and is totally based on the theme of royal culture and heritage and then equipped with the latest technology to fulfill each desire of its prestigious guests. There is a popular saying in Rajasthan that ‘guests are equivalent to God’ which is so rightly said and proved. The train is amongst the ten best trains all over the world.


Palace on Wheels consists of 14 well furnished coaches which are named after former states of Rajputana. The train is even famous for its restaurants namely ‘The Maharani’ and’ The Maharaja’ that serve all kinds of cuisines, specializing in royal Rajasthani cuisines. The royalty is incomplete without liqueur. The train has a lavish bar that is stocked nicely, and an inbuilt lounge that enhances the facilities in the train.


The eight-day tour route shows the train departing from New Delhi and during its tour it travels around Rajasthan with stoppages at Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Sawai Madhopur, Chittaurgarh, Udaipur, Bharatpur, and Agra.


Jaipur is the first stoppage as the train reaches on the second day i.e. on Thursday at 02.00 hrs, and departs at 19.30 hrs. The tour throughout the city comprises of: the first visit at Hawa Mahal (Palace of Wind), then Amber Fort.


After this, you are taken to the colorful and lively markets for shopping in Jaipur. Including a visit to Rajasthali (Rajasthan Government’s Handicraft Emporium) the tour proceeds for lunch that takes place at the Palace Hotel. The tour continues after lunch and now the visit is towards the royal City Palace that is still the residence of the royal family.
