Considered the brother of The Jayavarman in Heritage Line’s “family” of cruise ships, The Jahan is Heritage Line’s most romantic cruise liner. Plying the slow, swirling waters of the Mekong, the magnificent vessel was named after the Indian emperor Shah Jahan, who ruled the Mughal Empire from 1628 to 1658. A great patron of architecture and the arts, Shah Jahan oversaw the construction of many legendary sites which include India’s dazzling Red Fort and the well-known 777 gardens of Kashmir. This cultured monarch is a fitting namesake for The Jahan, evoking the opulent vessels of British India. There is no expense spared in the interior or exterior decorations, which showcase the talents of local woodworkers, weavers, and artists.
