Study Trip SEACS Majapahit Empire Tour
Led by John Miksic, 5-10 August 2014
Dear SEACS Members
John Miksic has organised an exciting five-day tour of east Java following in the footsteps of the Majapahit Empire especially for SEACS members.
Between 1294 and 1350, Majapahit became the largest empire ever seen in Southeast Asia, claiming vassals from Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula all the way to the Moluccas. The empire’s capital lay at Trowulan, in east Java. During the tour, we will visit the remains of the capital, including a large site museum where important works of art are exhibited. We will also visit some of the kingdom’s most important temples near Malang, several of which have beautiful relief carvings.
This rare opportunity to visit Majapahit sites with one of the world’s experts on the Majapahit Empire is limited to 15-20 participants.
