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.
