Java, Where the Myths and Legends Still Exist
When we talk about Java Island, it seems like talk something around an ancient society. In the past, there was a great kingdom in east Java, Majapahit, which became the biggest kingdom in Nusantara (read: Indonesia). For a long time Majapahit rules the huge area, bigger than Indonesian area in this time. Something to know, when we are talking about Java (society, legends, myths, and other legacies), it must be started from Majapahit (and several kingdoms before Majapahit era), and then it can spread into other kingdom, like Pajajaran in the west side of Java Island.
