The Legend of Sangkuriang

           Long ago, in the lush forests of West Java, there lived a handsome young man named Sangkuriang. He was the son of a beautiful widow named Dayang Sumbi. Sangkuriang was strong, brave, and skilled in hunting, but he was also arrogant and reckless.

          One day, while hunting in the forest, Sangkuriang stumbled upon a beautiful maiden named Dayang Sumbi. Not knowing that she was his own mother, Sangkuriang was captivated by her beauty and charm. They soon fell deeply in love and decided to get married.

           As the wedding day approached, Dayang Sumbi noticed a scar on Sangkuriang's forehead. She realized with horror that he was her own son, whom she had abandoned many years ago. Desperate to stop the wedding, Dayang Sumbi devised a plan.

          She told Sangkuriang that she would only marry him if he could build her a huge lake and a boat overnight. Sangkuriang, eager to please his beloved, accepted the challenge. Using his supernatural powers, he worked tirelessly to create the lake and the boat.

          But as dawn approached and Sangkuriang was almost finished, Dayang Sumbi saw the first light of the morning and knew that time was running out. She cleverly tricked Sangkuriang by creating the illusion of daylight with torches and roosters crowing.

          Believing that he had failed the task, Sangkuriang flew into a rage and kicked the boat, which turned into a mountain known as Mount Tangkuban Perahu. The lake he had created became the beautiful Lake Bandung.

          Heartbroken and filled with regret, Sangkuriang wandered the earth, never to return. Dayang Sumbi, mourning the loss of her son, spent her days by the shores of Lake Bandung, hoping for his return.
