The mesmerising sand dunes, captivating natural scenery, and splendid forts in every district of Rajasthan collectively set the stage for idyllic destination weddings, making the state a preferred choice. Adding to this allure, the globally acclaimed Palace on Wheels (PoW) luxury train is poised to become a distinctive venue for couples seeking a unique wedding experience.

This groundbreaking initiative is led by the Department of Tourism in collaboration with the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC), aimed at elevating the profile of destination weddings in the state. Couples planning to exchange vows can now consider the opulent ambiance of the Palace on Wheels, complete with provisions for pre and post-wedding photoshoots.
