The Deccan Odyssey is the latest brainchild of the Indian Railway and MTDC (Maharastra Tourism Development Corporation). In collaboration with the Taj Group of hotels, the Indian Railway has created this five star hotel on wheels. It is said that if Rajasthan is graced by the Palace On Wheels, Maharastra proudly echoes with the Deccan Odyssey. This luxury train gives an immense scope to the travelers to capture the beautiful forts and palaces, temples and beaches and culture and landscape of the Deccan.

Deccan Odyssey – The Making.

The Railway Ministry and the MTDC (Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation) signed a MOU for the Deccan Odyssey in February 2001. The Railway Board go-ahead signal was flashed in May 2002.

On January 16th, 2004 the Deccan Odyssey started its maiden journey from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai.
