Work on a planned Majapahit-style village in Trowulan yesterday has been described as half-hearted after recent government inspections to the project note a number of differences between the plans and the final product. The Majapahit Village project was meant to promote cultural and historical tourism around the Majapahit empire that was centred there.

Proyek Majapahit Setengah Hati

Di lokasi proyek tersebut para wakil rakyat menjumpai bangunan khas Majapahit yang dibangun tidak sama antar satu dengan lain. Kondisi ini tentu berbeda dengan konsep awal ketika proyek itu pertama kali dicanangkan.
