To thwart his intention to marry her,Dayang Sumbi filed Sangkuriang create conditions so that the boat overnight. When his efforts failed, Sangkuriang angry and kicked the boat, so that landed upside down in a state. The boat is then formed Tangkuban Mt.Tangkuban Mt includes an active volcano whose status is being watched by the Indonesian Directorate of Volcanology. Some of the crater is still showing signs of liveliness of this mountain. Among these signs is the emergence of volcanic sulfur gas and hot water sources at the foot of her mountain of them are in kasawan Ciater, Subang.The existence of this mountain and the shape of the Bandung basin topography with hills and mountains on each side reinforces the theory of the existence of a lake (crater) is now a major area of Bandung. It is believed by geologists that the plateau region of Bandung with a height of approximately 709 m above sea level is a remnant of an ancient volcanic eruption known as Mount Sunda and Tangkuban Mt is the remnant of ancient Sunda Mountain which is still active. Phenomena like this can be seen on Mount Krakatau in the Sunda Strait and Ngorongoro district in Tanzania, Africa.

In sense, this story really does not make sense, and it's hard to believe. We do not need to believe in this story. We as people of Indonesia, must preserve this legend. This is one of the legends that exist in Indonesia.

Yes, I know the story, because it was very popular until there is a film that tells. But it is a fictitious legend.
