The Palace on Wheels
ARTISAN OF TRAVEL SINCE 1980
The basic concept of India's first luxury train tour that still holds true today is - Overnight travel in comfortable AC sleeping chambers on the train and pre-arranged group sightseeing in the day by AC buses.
On rolling back wheels of time, we find the rulers of princely states of Rajputana, Gujarat, the Nizam of Hyderabad and the Viceroy of British India travelled by these luxurious coaches. After independence, these coaches were parked and remained in this state for a quarter of a century until in 1981-82, when the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation and Indian Railways launched a special heritage tourist train for providing a unique memorable experience to the tourists visiting Rajasthan.
The name Palace on Wheels was derived from the royal background of the coaches. Gradually many infrastructural changes were brought about in the coaches while keeping the same aesthetics of the interiors alive, matching the interiors of the royal state. In late 1980s, the original passengers saloons of Ex Maharajas were replaced by Metre Gauge train, that had AC Cabins with sharing bathrooms. Then in 1996, due to rail track conversion in India. A Broad Guage version of the Palace On Wheels train was introduced in 1996, where all the Cabins had private attached bathrooms.
In September 2017, new train carriages have been introduced on the Palace on Wheels luxury train, that are more spacious in size & now guests have the option to book Deluxe or Super Deluxe Cabins.
