Once upon a time there was a person named Ki Sutaarga. He intends to organize a puppet show. The role that he wants to be shown is the role that is most forbidden by the puppeteer.
The role was shown, but not until the end. Because if you get to the end usually there are always unwanted events. But Ki Sutaarga insisted on knowing that role until the end. Even though you have to pay anything, it’s not a paid bird as long as the role is shown to the end.
Ki Dalang also said “Okay, it will be shown until the end, as long as the fare is paid first?”. There are not many stories, Ki Sutaagra paid for the dalang’s request. Because it was driven by a large fee, a very lively puppet show was held.
The singer who is familiarly called Nyai Astrakembang who shines brightly, if the children say now is like enyoy-enyoyan, sings songs that are very happy. The audience also arrived from the suklakna of the cyclone.
Very many, hear the sound of sinden spinning very well. When the role was almost finished, approaching dawn, arrived two people wearing district upas uniforms. The Upas conveyed the Regent’s order that the puppeteers, sinden, nayaga and gamelan sapuratina, pay their respects to the Regent.
He said he was waiting. So the puppeteer walked back and forth ordering his friends to clean up. He also informed Ki Sutaarga if he was summoned by the Regent. They all went accompanied by the two upas to the Regent’s residence.
The road is straight, the journey is really fun because the road is not confusing. The story is that the group has arrived at their destination. After going through several meaningless delays, they arrived at the Regency building, when it happened that it was noon.
But strange bin magic! The two sub-districts did not exist, the district had lost holes for no reason. All those present were destroyed, not knowing where they had disappeared. All that remains is the gamelan – the gamelan. Even the mattress that was rolled up from the former sinden seat turned to stone.
Until now, the mountain is named Mount Kendang. In the past, every Tuesday and Friday in Kliwon there was always a crowd like an entertainment event. Be it the sound of the windbreak sinden, the hoarse voice of the slave, the sound of the gamelan nangnengong. Beaten by the sound of drums, dung plaque dung, very clearly visible.
It ends with a goong, a loud cheer, which is really deafening. Many people are deceived from the southern part of Mount Kendang, such as Cikareo, Bantarpeundeuy, and others. Who will watch the film goes to the location where the sound came from, according to him there is work in Cibitung village.
People working overtime in the north of Gunung Kendang said they thought the puppets were in Cikarosea or Bantar Peundeuy. Those who saw immediately went down to the south. Walking side by side the one from the north and the one from the south tide, then ask each other where the work is. Each – each stunned, no one can explain.
And then turned away reluctantly feeling cheated. The peculiarity of Mount Kendang is its rock formations that look like drums, goong, nymphs, rolls, and roll mattresses. Which is like an abundance of mattress rolls there are fourteen, standing stands. It was like a scroll one and a half meters long.
Mount Kendang is located in Sukamukti Village, Cisompét District, Garut Regency, a forestry complex known as the Jagasatru Block.
