Legend of Bandung

       Once upon a time in the area of Pasundan, on the outskirts of the Citarum River, there was an old man who was famous for having the magic power. His name was Empu Wasesa. He lived with his beautiful daughter named Sekar. (Also read : Legend of Tolire Lake Ternate)

       Besides Sekar, Empu Wisesa had two students. Their names were Jaka and Wira. He found them when they were still babies in a village that was falling apart due to the volcanic eruption of Tangkuban Perahu which until then the lava still often endangered the surrounding area. The two babies were then taken home, treated and taught science by Empu Wisesa.

       Despite having the same teacher, Jaka and Wira had different temperaments. Jaka was handsome, he liked to play and he was good at talking, even though he was smart, but because of his character that made things easy, he was far behind Wira who diligently looked for knowledge and the essence of life.

       These different qualities did not make them both far apart, they were like two brothers who helped each other and shared secrets. But there was one thing they did not express to each other, about their feelings towards Sekar, their teacher’s daughter. read more
