History - construction and ownership

The 950-ton ship RV Jahan was named after Shah Jahan, an Indian emperor who ruled the Mughal Empire from 1628 to 1658. Shah Jahan was a great patron of architecture and arts. He oversaw the construction of plenty of legendary sites, including the dazzling Red Fort in India, and the famous 777 gardens of Kashmir.
