This capital city of Rajasthan, popularly known as the Pink City, was founded by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, in 1727 A.D.

One can almost sense a life of the wilderness, as the Palace-On-Wheels arrives in Sawai Madhopur, a city named after its founder Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh I. After breakfast a visit is arranged to the Ranthabor National Park, wherein are located the ruins of a 10th century fort. This wildlife sanctuary is considered to be the country's best for observing and photographing the activities of the tiger. Images of love and valour, scars of battles lost and won… thrice-besieged. Chittaurgarh Fort is all this and more. Moving legends of honour and pride will echo in mind as you proceed to Udaipur.
The Luxury train will take you to Udaipur, the Lake City, the next morning. It was founded by Maharana Udai Singh of Mewar, after the Sisodia dynasty was driven away by the Mughals, in 1559 A.D. Early next morning, the Palace-On-Wheels arrives in Bharatpur, the capital of Maharaja Suraj Mal. Arrive at Fatehpur Sikri- the red sandstone Mughal palatial complex. Agra the final stop of the luxury train tour is known for its splendid marble inlay work like the Pietra Dura Work on the Taj, leather goods and jewellery.
