Once upon a time, there was a king named King Brawijaya. He ruled Majapahit kingdom. He has a daughter named Roro Anteng. Roro Anteng fell in love with Jaka Seger. He was a man from the Brahmin Caste. King Brawijaya did not agree with their relationship.

Roro Anteng and Jaka Seger left Majapahit. They moved to a place near Mount Bromo. They ruled the region together. The people were prosperous under their leadership. However, they were unhappy because they had no children. Desperate, they decided to climb to the top of Mount Bromo. They prayed for help to the god of Mount Bromo. He granted their wish. However, the youngest child must be sacrificed in the crater of the volcano.

After giving birth to 25 children, Roro Anteng and Jaka Seger have to sacrifice their last child, Kesuma. If they broke their promise, they would be threatened with catastrophe. After Kesuma was sacrificed, they heard Kesuma’s voice. He told everyone not to forget to perform worship
