Luxury train traveling in India has come a long way since the introduction of Palace on Wheels train in 1982 for promotion of tourism in Rajasthan. The most recent and unarguably the most luxurious tourist train in India with finesse at par with the Orient Express of the West, Maharajas Express has redefined the art of elegant train traveling in India. A fascinating voyage across some of the finest destinations in India let you discover the true spirit of this incredible nation.

An Experience Unforgettable

As if 2 World Travel Awards, several nominations in World's Leading Luxury Train category and numerous other awards were not already enough, Maharaja's Express can be introduced as one of the most popular luxury trains running on Indian rails. The train was incepted in 2010 by the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) with a view to provide unmatched luxury to guests looking for the Maharaja experience. Since the keyword here was always "Maharaja", everything that was befitting an Indian monarch was somehow incorporated into the train and its journey. King size beds that were studded with jewels, cabins that would put Five Star hotel suites to shame, hospitality that even the Rajahs of yore would envy. It is all these things and more that makes the Maharaja's Express not just a journey. It is a lifestyle – 7 days of godly bliss.
