Trowulan is an archaeological site in Trowulan Subdistrict, Mojokerto Regency, in the Indonesian province of East Java.

When it was the capital of the Majapahit Empire, the city was known as Wilwatikta, which is a name also synonymous with the empire’s name. It was razed during to the invasion of Girindrawardhana to defeat Kertabhumi in 1478. After this event Majapahit’s capital was moved to Daha (Kediri).
