1stDecember, 2012. As the Indian luxury train, the Deccan Odyssey, gets ready for its December departures, the journey right after Christmas, starting on 26th December, 2012, is almost booked out. With only a few seats remaining on one of Asia’s most luxurious trains, there’s starting a mad rush to get a name on the guest list of Deccan Odyssey.
The train continues to be popular among foreign and local tourists alike, with occupancy rates touching the high nineties during the peak season around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. In fact, it can be safely assumed that only the last few seats are now left on the train.
The majesty and splendor of the Royal Rajasthan on Wheels, with its comfortable and elegant compartments, delicious cuisine and superb service, combined with the adventure of a journey through the heart of India, is a truly unique way to experience the full wonder of this remarkable region.

Deccan Odyssey is the brainchild of the Maharashtra Tourism and Development Corporation (MTDC), launched on 16th January, 2004. Not many people know this that it was the second luxury train to be launched after the success of the famous Palace on Wheels.
The week long journey offered by this luxury tourist train encompasses Sindhudurg, Goa, Vasco, Kolhapur, Daulatabad, Ajanta & Ellora and Nashik. The two day halt in Goa is the result of the recent repackaging of the itinerary of this luxury train. Chattrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai is the point of embarkation and disembarkation of this train. Here in this post, I am highlighting a few destinations covered during this luxury train tour.
Associated with the famous Maratha ruler ‘Shivaji Raje Bhosale’, Sindhudurg is a fortress positioned on an island in the Arabian Sea. The fort was built by Shivaji’s master architect Hiroji Indalkar in 1664. The fort comprises of zigzag ramparts with 42 bastions and required 72,576 Kg of iron for the construction of the huge curtain walls and bastions. This small town abounds with beaches, backwaters, waterfalls and pilgrimage sites.
Nestled on the banks of the river Panchganga, Kolhapur is a popular destination in the state of Maharashtra. Legend has it that goddess Mahalakshmi killed a demon known as Kolhasur to save the local populace. It is the place where India’s first feature film ‘Raja Harishchandra’ was conceptualized. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the Mahalaxmi temple and the local bazaars famous for Kolhapuri footwears.
Ajanta & Ellora Caves
A perfect example of human artistry, these caves are the living symbols of the ancient Indian civilization. While Ajanta caves are housed with paintings and sculptures related to the Jataka tales, Ellora caves epitomize harmony between Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
One of the holiest destinations of the Hindu pilgrims, Nashik is one of the four venues of the famous Kumbh Mela. There is a mythological legend associated with it which says that Lord Rama spent 14 years of his exile in the Tapovan near Nashik. Also the city of Nashik is home to one of the 12 jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva.
