Bandung Bondowoso and Roro Jongrang

Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful Javanese princess whose named was Roro Jongrang, Roro Jongrang whose beauty was very famous in the land was the daughter of Prabu Baka, an evil King.

One day, a handsome young man with super natural power, named Bandung Bondowoso, defeated and killed Prabu Baka. On seeing Princess Roro Jongrang’s beauty, Bandung Bondowoso, Bandung Bondowoso fell in love and wanted to marry her.

Meanwhile, Princess Roro Jongrang felt sad due to the death of her father. She did not want to marry Bandung because he had killed her father. But she was also afraid of Bandung. So, to refuse politely, she made a condition. “I will marry you but you have to bulid one thousand temples in one night as a wedding gift” requested Roro Jongrang. Bandung Bondowoso agreed with this condition.

Helped by the spirits of demons, Bandung Bondosowo started building the temples. Approaching midnight, the work was nearly done. Roro Jongrang knew and thought, “What shall I do? Bandung is smarter than me. I will lose against Bandung”.

Suddenly she got and idea. She woke up all the women in the palace and ordered them to make the noisy sounds of grinding rice so that the roosters would think it had already dawn.

Bandung Bondowoso got frustrated because he failed to complete the thousandth temple. “The princess has deceived me!” following his anger, he cursed Roro Jongrang, “ You have cheated me” said Bandung.

“Oh my lovely boy, you know what everything is fair in love and war”

“Now, the thousandth temple is you!”

At once, the princess turned into a statue. Knowing this Bandung Bondowoso regretted this and he went away into a far land. From then, pople called the temple ‘Prambanan Temple’ and the princesss statue ‘Roro Jongrang statue’
