     Home | City | Kediri East Java

Kediri is an Indonesian city, located near the Brantas River in the province of East Java on the island of Java.

Archaeological artefacts discovered in 2007 appeared to indicate that the region around Kediri may have been the location of the Kediri kingdom, a Hindu kingdom in the 11th century.

The city is a major trade centre for the Indonesian sugar and cigarette industry.
