Maharajas' Express Train History

Ever since the inception of luxury train travel in India with the Maharajas Express in the 2010, there have been continuous improvements in the services and facilities offered onboard luxury trains in India. The Maharajas Express, considered one of the finest luxury trains in India, has become the preferred choice for exploring the rich culture and history of incredible India.

The Maharajas Express embarked on its inaugural journey, 'Gems of India'. This 3-night/4-day journey covering the 'Golden Triangle' of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur commenced at New Delhi's Safdarjung Railway Station. Over time, this luxury train expanded its offerings to more splendid tours, including 7-night/8-day itineraries like The Indian Panorama, The Indian Splendour, and The Heritage of India.

With advancements in technology, the Maharajas Express stays updated with the latest technological features, offering facilities like Wi-Fi, intercom, flat-screen plasma TVs, etc. The train is often compared to the 'Orient Express of the West' in terms of its interesting skills and expertise. Regular improvements are made to keep up with modern facilities, yet one thing remains constant – the Royal Hospitality and Grandeur of the Maharajas Express.

Even before the establishment of railway networks in India, the Maharajahs of ancient India were fascinated by trains and tracks. Legends tell of the Maharajah of Gwalior showcasing his model train, a silver creation that would move along as dignitaries dined at the banquet hall. Another story recounts how the Maharajah of Vadodara, as a young child, received a toy train that functioned like a real one.

Many kings constructed private tracks through narrow lanes for their fully-functional toy trains. Some even had special jeweled thrones in their personal carriages. The royal cabins of the Maharajas Express resemble these private carriages, featuring intricate tapestries, mirrored wall hangings, sylvan inlays, and portraits of kings from those times. Every corner of the Maharajas Express exudes premium grandeur and refinement.
