Indonesia names Nusantara its new capital to replace sinking Jakarta

Jakarta (Indonesia) – With Indonesia’s capital Jakarta likely to completely sink in the sea within the next few years, Indonesia has decided to change its capital to Nusantara. Billions of rupees will be spent to make Nusantara an internationally iconic city. Indonesian Minister for National Development and Planning Suharso Monoarfa said that Nusantara will be Indonesia’s true identity, an iconic city. Jakarta will remain the commercial and financial centre.

History of Nusantara city

In the 14th century, the island of Java was ruled by the Javanese Hindu King Hayam Wuruk of the Majapahit Empire. His Prime Minister’s name was Gajah Mada. Wuruk had vowed not to eat meat until Nusantara was conquered. This meant that unless the current cities of Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, southern Thailand, and the Philippines were conquered, they would not eat meat. Wuruk finally conquered Nusantara.
