Lara Jonggrang is the name of a princess proposed in marriage by a giant. By way of proof of love, she asks to its suitor to raise in one night, a temple decorated with thousand statues. At daybreak, work is almost completed, but wanting the failure of the giant, it awakes all the cocks of the area to announce the sunrise in advance, whereas there remains only one statue to be finished. Absolutely furious in front of the perfidy of the princess, the giant petrifies her on the place, thus transforming her into statue, the last. It is that of the Durga goddess that rises in the northern room of the main temple, and which is always the object of veneration.
