Derivation of Bromo Semeru Tengger National Park
The Existence of Mount Bromo Semeru Tengger National Park was derived from an abbreviation of Tengger (Cemoro Lawang tribe of Ngadisari village). The name of “Tengger” was taken from the suffix TENG namely “Roro Anteng” and the suffix GER namely “Joko Seger”. The Tengger tribe were the original inhabitants of Mount Bromo that derived from the legend of Princess Roro Anteng (daughter of the Majapahit King Brawijaya) and her husband Joko Seger. Here they developed a new kingdom namely “Tengger” using parts of their respective surnames. The Kingdom of Tengger transformed into prospered and their religion flourished, but the royal couple were unable to produce an heritage to the throne. In desperation they prayed and meditated on Bromo Mountain for many days before the crater opened and the almighty god Hyang Widi Wasa announced that they would be given 25 children, with the condition that the last child named “Kusuma” must be sacrificed to Mount Bromo Crater. After 25 children were produced in last year later, Roro Anteng and Joko Segger broke their god condition and refused to sacrifice their last borne Prince Kesuma. Eventually, a dreadful eruption of Bromo followed and swallowed Kesuma into the crater. To appease the great God, Kesuma’s brothers and sisters held an offering ceremony at the crater once every year until today namley “The Yadnya Kasada Ceremony” and celebrated in Mount Bromo Semeru National Park, East Java Indonesia on the full moon of the 12th month according the Tenggerese calendar.
