With the phenomenal success of the Palace on Wheels, the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation along with Indian Railways and the Indian Government presents yet another luxury train for those tourists who are desirous of exploring the exotic interiors of Rajasthan. The train provides the same luxurious treatment that is accorded to passengers of the Palace on Wheels. The facilities and the environment aboard the Heritage on Wheels are quiet similar to that of the Palace on Wheels.
However, given so many similarities, there are certain differences as well. Firstly the destinations covered by this train are different from that of the Palace on Wheels. Tourists are taken to a tour of what is known as the 'open air art gallery of Rajasthan'- the Shekhawati region. Also, what seperates the Heritage on Wheels with the Palace on Wheels is the number of days provided for tour. Whereas it is 8 days and 7 nights in the Palace on Wheels, it is just 4 days and 3 nights in the Heritage on Wheels. This means that tourists who have lesser time on hand can also enjoy the luxury of the royal people while exploring Rajasthan. Moreover, it means that the cost incurred on this trip is much less than that of the Palace on Wheels.
The Heritage on Wheels has started functioning from Feb, 2007.
