Palace on Wheels
Palace on Wheels
The Story Begins....
The palace on wheels (POW) has graced the Rajasthan Tourism and the Indian Railways since January 1982. The Rajasthan tourism Development corporation, The Indian Railways, the Tourism department of Rajasthan and the Government of India launched POW as a special heritage tourist train for providing a unique and memorable experience to the tourists visiting Rajasthan.

The concept of the palace on wheels (Palace on Wheels Train Tours) was derived from the royal background of the coaches which were originally meant to be the personal railway coaches of erstwhile rulers of the princely states of Rajputana and Gujarat, the Nizam of Hyderabad and the viceroy of British India.


The History of the Palace on Wheels
The train was built for the former Indian royalty and comprised of personal coaches of the rulers of the princely states of Gujarat and Rajputana, the Viceroy of British India and the Nizam of Hyderabad.

Soon India won her independence and the princely states became part of the nation. The train was abandoned but did not lose its intrinsic charm. In the early 1980s, the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation, together with the Indian Railways decided on a special train to offer people a taste of the Indian past. Today, the Palace on Wheels is the most promoted product by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India.
