On this tour we visit the complex of Majapahit-era temples at Trowulan in the province of Mojokerto in East Java. The tour will include the main brick temples and other structures of this ancient capital of the Majapahit Empire, built between A.D.1293 and 1500. Also included in the tour will be a visit to the Trowulan Museum, the stone carving, bronze casting, traditional batik, and glass bead cottage industries nearby, and the impressive modern day Reclining Buddha at the Buddhist Center. This tour is offered all year round.
Our tours are led by me, an English-speaking expat, who has a thorough knowledge of Java and Madura, having lived in Indonesia for 25 years, and my co-organizer, Samsul, who comes from East Java. With our outstanding network of local contacts we really know Java. I have written numerous articles on Indonesia for magazines, both in Indonesia and internationally. I was a contributor to the most recent edition of the Rough Guide to Indonesia, and my photographs of Indonesia have been published in a variety of magazines.
