The south Indian landscape is a treasure box of natural and architectural jewelery that expresses the generosity of nature and the protection of the rulers of South India who used to be their favorite deity. Covered by the romance of the past and the subtleties of the present, Golden Chariot invites guests on an enchanting journey to cover some of the most famous destinations in Karnataka, Kerala and TamilNadu.
A joint venture of the Karnataka State Tourism and Development Corporation (KSTDC) and Indian Railroad, Golden Chariot made its maiden trip on March 10, 2010 to provide a luxury train tour in southern India. Named after the famous stone train in Hampi, this luxury Indian train seeks to explore the historical heritage of the southern region in a luxurious manner.
Painted in gold and purple that symbolizes the royal age of the South Indian dynasty, the Golden Chariot exudes an aura of elegance and luxury from every angle and angle. The Indian luxury train logo is a mythical animal, an elephant-headed lion. Both the lion and the elephant signify nobility in its own way. While the first is the king of the jungle, the other is the leading vehicle for royal travel. Bonhomie’s fleet and friendly staff welcome guests in the traditional way before boarding the train.
Historical heritage, beautiful works of art and cultural ethos of the ruling dynasty in the south are manifested in these 11 luxury tourist train coaches. The names of these 11 trainers were inspired by various dynasties that had ruled the region in the past and echoed the architectural ethos of that era.
Ceilings, wall panels and furniture have been intricately carved with exquisite workmanship echoing the architectural traditions of Hoyasala and Mysore. What’s more, the interplay of old-fashioned decoration with sylvan furniture and modern facilities creates a pleasant traditional and contemporary juxtaposition. With a capacity to accommodate 88 guests, the 13 guest cabins of Indian luxury trains are equipped with LCD TVs, wardrobes, dressing tables, and private en-suite bathrooms.
In addition to royal interiors and luxury services, Golden Chariot gets full points for the dining experience it offers. Two luxuriously designed restaurants and casual lounges inside this magnificent train offer services similar to five-star hotels. A wide selection of delicious Indian and international dishes are served with high taste to satisfy guest tastes. Not to mention mentioning the Madira lounge bar, which literally means the mythical drink of the Gods. If you offer wine and beverage choices from around the world to unwind the souls of the guests.
Golden Chariot is also ahead of its competitors by providing the perfect solution to the MICE problem of smart corporate moguls. Golden Chariot rates starting from USD 545 are certainly not a big problem for business executives to run their business, even when traveling. Saying that the Golden Chariot train offers a luxurious way to travel to southern India will not be excessive.
