The Heritage on Wheels luxury train tour explores the hidden attractions of the royal land of Rajasthan. Unlike the Palace on Wheel train that takes the traditional route, this luxury train tour takes the tourists to lesser known regions such as Bikaner and Shekhawati. The aesthetic touch of the arid land of Rajasthan is manifested in the brilliant frescoes of Shekhawati that has earned them the name of the open air art gallery. Jaipur is the pink city of Rajasthan and is one of the most sought after cities while in Rajasthan.
The journey of the Heritage on Wheels train starts and ends at the Jaipur city; Jaipur is famous for paintings, carpets, brass, ceramic, jewellery, handicraft and the leather shoes. Visitors can shop for such things to their hearts content over here. Another major attraction for the tourists at their Heritage on Wheel luxury train tour is Bikaner.
The city of Bikaner boasts of rich royal heritage and one can find the magnificent Gajner Palace at the city. The palace is the gem of the desert and is located by the lake amidst pleasant greenery. The place is a treat for the birdwatchers as many migratory birds come here. The beauty of the Gajner Palace is to be experienced to believe it.
The sightseeing in Shekhawati is what the Heritage on Wheel train tour is for. Very few international tourists know the attractions that the city has to offer. The open air art galleries are what Shekhawati offers the visitors. The big havelis adorn the landscape of the region as these havelis were built by the wealthy merchants. The havelis have vast expanses and are almost like forts. Ramgarh havelis and the Mandawa havelis amply conform to the traditional character of a Rajasthani haveli.
The paintings tell the stories of the bygone heroes of the land and also are religious in nature. The historical events are also well documented in the paintings. Tourists can find all of the Shekhawati dotted with a sense of art and the region truly suits the name, the open air art gallery of Rajasthan. Even if you have the experience of the Palace on the Wheels, the experience of the Heritage on the Wheels is much more exhilarating and a must for the travelers.
