About the Palace on Wheels

The Royal Rajasthan On Wheels has been re-named as Palace on Wheels. In the new Palace on Wheels, there are three cabins per carriage. Each cabin is bigger. Carriage suspension is also better.

Travelling on the Palace on Wheels is one of the memorable ways to explore India's stately splendour. The carriages have been refurbished as replicas of the original saloon carriages of the Maharajas.

Enjoy international cuisine, relax in the library, have a drink at the bar, or just retreat into your extensive cabin and watch the tapestry of the Rajasthan countryside unfold.

The efficient traditional liveried staff take care of everything one can think of, from accommodation, food, organized guided tours to shopping; there is nothing left to chance for passengers on The Palace on Wheels.
