One day, a handsome young man with super natural power, named Bandung Bondowoso, defeated and killed prabu baka. On seeing princes Roro Jonggrang’s beauty, Bandung Bondowoso fell in love and wanted to marry her.
Mean while, Princess roro jonggrang felt sad due to the death of her father. She did not want to marry bandung Because he had killed her father. But she was also afraid of bandung. So to refuse politely, she made a condition. “ I will Marry you but you have to build one thousand temples in one night as a wedding gift.” Resuested Roro Jonggrang. Bandung agree with this condition.
Helped by the spirits of demons, Bandung Bondowoso started building the temples. Approaching midnight, the workwas nearly done. Roro Jonggrang knew and thought, “ What shall I do? Bandung is smarter than me. I will lose against Bandung?”
Suddenly she got an idea. She woke up all the women in the place and ordered them to make the noisy sounds of griding rice so that the roosters would think it had already dawn
Bandung bondowoso got frustrated because he failed to complete the thousand temple. “ The prices has decided me!” Folowing his anger, he crused Roro Jonggrang; “ You have cheated me, Now, The thousandth temple is you!”.
At once the princes turned Into a statue. Knowing this, Bandung Bondowod\sp regretted this and he went away into a far land. From then, People called the temple “PRAMBANAN TEMPLE “and the princes statue “ RORO JONGGRANG STATUE”
