Trowulan Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

This was once the capital of the greatest Hindu kingdom in Indonesia, the Majapahit kingdom (1294-1478). Given the fragility of the construction materials used (brick and wood), the vestiges now only amount to a few isolated elements, but the inspiring museum will help you piece together this prestigious site in your mind (hire a becak as the remains are dispersed): red-brick pool with gargoyles, Troloyo Cemetery, which houses the oldest Muslim tombs found (1376), 15m-high sculpted monumental portal.
