Trowulan - INDONESIA - UNESCO TENTATIVE

Trowulan in the Indonesian province of East Java, is the site of the former capital city of the Majapahit Kingdom - on the postcard we can see Bajang Ratu, the elegant Paduraksa style gate to the ancient town. All the archaeological site (covering approximately 100 square kilometres) is a tentative to enter the UNESCO list. Thanks again Shinta for this beautiful postcard and for the amazing stamps you used.
  
Bajang Ratu, Trowulan - INDONESIA - UNESCO TENTATIVE
   
The Trowulan site is the only city site of the Hindu-Budha classical age in Indonesia that can still be found. The site of the former capital city of the Majapahit Kingdom was built on flat terrains at the foot of three mountains, namely the Penanggungan, Welirang, and Anjasmara Mountain.
