The Legend of Mount Wayang

Long time ago, there was a small kingdom on the slope of Mount Wayang in West Java. The King named Sang Prabu was a wise man. He had a daughter called Princess Teja Nirmala. She was beautiful but she was not married. One day, Sang Prabu made up his mind to settle the matter by a show of strength.

After that, Prince of Blambangan won the competition. Unfortunately, the wicked fair,Princess Segara fell in love with Raden Bengawan, the Prince of Blambangan. She used magic power to render him unconscious and forgot the wedding.

Soon afterward, he was realized that he had been enchanted by the wicked fairy. So, she killed Raden Bengawan. Princess Teja Nirmala heard this. She was so sad. A nice fairy took her to Kahyangan.

The story goes that on certain moonlight nights, one can hear that sound of music in the air about from the top of mountain. It indicates that Sang Prabu and his daughter have not met each other till dawn.
