via Jakarta Post, 16 March 2019:

A site thought to be from the Majapahit Kingdom has been found in Sekarpuro subdistrict, Malang regency, East Java, during the development of section V of the Malang-Pandaan toll road project.

The discovery has put the construction on hold, according to the president director of state-owned toll road operator PT Jasa Marga Pandaan-Malang, Agus Purnomo.

“We are waiting for the result of the study conducted by the Cultural Heritage Preservation Center [BPCB] and will coordinate with the BPCB in Trowulan [East Java] regarding the finding,” Agus said on Sunday.

The finding was a brick structure resembling stairs and bricks scattered on the site of the toll road construction. Each of the bricks is about 45 x 60 centimeters wide with a thickness of 7 cm.
