Rajdhani means “The Capital” and as the name explains this Indian passenger train connects from India’s capital New Delhi to other prominent destinations.

In 1969, Rajdhani Express was introduced. It connected from the country’s capital New Delhi to different capital stations of the country. The first Rajdhani Express train traveled from New Delhi station to Howrah station. The distance it covered in 16 hours and 55 minutes was 1,445 km.

The meals depend on the timing and duration of the journey and it includes high tea, morning tea, lunch, dinner, and breakfast.
