Palace On Wheels

The passenger coaches which were originally meant to be the personal railway coaches of t he erstwhile rulers of princely states of Rajputana, Gujarat, the Nizam of Hyderabad and the Viceroy of British India. These coaches were not being used by the Indian Railways after independence in normal passenger trains on account of very rich and traditional interiors.

The name "Palace-on-Wheels" (POW) was derived from its royal back-ground of the coaches. A new air conditioned meter gauge Palace-on-Wheels Train was introduced in 1990 with sharing toilets had 13 Saloons, 2 Restaurant cum Kitchen car, one Bar cum Lounge and 4 Service Cars. In order to further increase the amenities on the train and Due to conversion of tracks to broad gauge in Rajasthan , the present 14 Passenger Saloon train was introduced with A/C cabins attached toilets in 1995 & offers Royal comforts with modern amenities personalised service.

In the past 20 years of operations, the Palace-on-Wheels has been rated as one of the best ten luxurious rail journeys in the world.


The names of the saloons are based on the princely states of Rajasthan - Alwar, Bharatpur, Bikaner, Bundi, Dholpur, Dungarpur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jhalawar, Jodhpur, Kishangarh, Kota, Sirohi, and Udaipur.
