       In the 13th century, Majapahit kingdom was at its peak. This kingdom was ruled by Prabu Hayam Wuruk. He was young, intelligent, and brave. He had a smart prime minister whose name was Gajah Mada. The palace of Majapahit was very big. It was very luxurious. Inside of the palace there was a special building called ‘Gedong Pusaka’. It was a house or more precisely a luxurious warehouse to store all the treasure of the kingdom. There were jewelries, gold crown, earrings, gold coins, gold Kris and many other luxurious things. That’s why the building was heavily guarded. There was a high wall surrounding it. The soldiers were on duty inside and outside the wall for twenty four hours a day. All of them were fully armed. It was almost impossible for anyone at that time to get into the Gedong Pusaka. (Also read : The Legend of Lutung Kasarung)

This situation was very unusual in Majapahit. The people of Majapahit interpreted this strange phenomenon as a signal from god. They were sure that a great event would take place. read more
