Anyway, going back, we went to a place called LARA DJONGGRANG. After more than a thousand years, the timeless, mystical legend of Lara Djonggrang is now documented into a most uniquely romantic restaurant in Jakarta , the capital city of Indonesia, a city known among connoisseurs for the heat and chicness of its evening life.
Tito Mon (TR's husbandry) reserved a room for us to celebrate the birthday of my beloved Rosette. The waiter offered to give us a tour of the restaurant and the story of how it came to be is astounding!
Once upon a time during the times of the Hinduism in Java, there lived Lara Djonggrang, a princess renowned for her stunning beauty. In during kingdom of Prambanan , Lara Djonggrang's father was killed by a powerful man Bandung Bondowoso, the son of king Prabu Baka. Blinded by her beauty, Bandung Bondowoso madly fell in love with the princess and was determined to marry Lara Djonggrang, whatever it required to do.
Touched by the story, they sent for Lara Djonggrang to be taken to the heavens, riding on a Javanese mythological lion, where she finally found eternal peace. The stone visualization of Lara Djonggrang on her way to heavens is one of the masterpieces in this beautiful restaurant, as well as a statue portraying her refusal to Bandung Bondowoso's plea to marry him. The artworks presented in this restaurant bring back to life the luxurious romance and ancient atmosphere of Prambanan.
The Party Peeps
