LEGEND OF KEMARO ISLAND
Kemaro Island is a legend of love affair. It was about a Palembang King’s daughter, Siti Fatimah, and a Chinese King’s son, Tan Bun An. In Palembang’s tradition, man should give Mahar (amount of money or Gold to the bride’s family). The Mahar was 9 jugs of gold. Tan Bun An went back to China told this to his parent. In avoiding the pirates attack on its way back to Palembang, Tan Bun An’s parent covered the jugs with salty food and vegetables on the top of them. when he got to Palembang, he wanted to check the jugs before he gave it to his bride. To his surprise, he found the jugs contained nothing but salty food and vegetables. He was disappointed and furious that he threw the jugs into the river. But one of them, hit the ship’s wall and broke into pieces that he could see the gold inside. Regretting for what he was doing, he decided to jump into the river and get himself drowned. Seeing this, Siti Fatimah did the same thing. She jumped into the river while saying “if a land comes out of this river, it will be the place where I am buried.”
