The Shades of Horror at Sodong Beach’s cliff

There is a cave on the Sodong beach. It is the writer’s experience when visited Sodong beach.

Fist of all, I felt doubt to walk down th ecave, but finally I tried to enter the cave.

When I entered the cave for a moment, I smelt the hard incense on my flat nose. The cave was so dark and lack of lighting. The floor was sandly and at some corners there was some places to meditation.

When I tried to walk down the cave, my foot tripped something and evidently, it was a person who did meditation.

I felt afraid and nervous. But because the people who did the meditation was just kept silent and still on his meditation position.

I continued to walk down the cave. And I found some people did meditiation liked i saw on the films. I didn’t know what did their air did the meditation here.

The important thing that must you reember when you visit the cave, please be polite here. We will so safe. Don’t do reckless activities when you visit the Sodong beach Cilacap.

There were much tragic stories from the people there caused their habit that done on the Sodong beach Cilacap.

So, I suggest you if you visit Sodong beach Cilacap please take care your polite habit both the attitude and speech.

Temanggung is a regency in Central Java Province which is capitalized in Temanggung and borders with Kendal regency in the north, Semarang regency in the east, Magelang regency in the south, and Wonosobo regency in the west.

The History of Temanggung Regency

The history of Temanggung is always associated with the ancient Mataram king named Rakai Pikatan. The name Pikatan itself is used to mention an area that is located in the spring in the village Mudal Temanggung District. Here, there are relics of ruins of ancient rocks believed to be the king of Rakai Pikatan.

Temanggung history began to be recorded on the inscription of Wanua Tengah III in 908 AD which was found resident of Dunglo Village Gandulan Village Kaloran Temanggung Subdistrict in November 1983. The inscription depicts that Temanggung was originally in the form of the rich kademangan where one of the area is Pikatan. Here was established a Hindu monastery by the younger brother of the ancient Mataram king Rahyangta I Hara, the king was Rahyangta Rimdang (King Sanjaya) who ascended the throne in 717 AD (Mantyasih Inscription). By Rake Panangkaran the heir to the throne who ascended the throne on 27 November 746 AD, the Pikatan monastery obtains a crook in Sawah SIma. If it is associated with the Gondosuli inscription there is a clear description that from Temanggung District extends westward to Bulu sub-district and so on is a fertile and serene region (marked by Pikatan temple).

King Sanjaya's successor was Rakai Panangkaran who ascended the throne on 27 November 746 AD and reigned for approximately 38 years. In Angling Dharma legend, the palace was estimated to be in Kedu (Bojonegoro Village).

In this village found relics of ruins. In the Kedu region was also found Kademangan village. Rakai Panangkaran's successor was Rakai Panunggalan who ascended the throne on 1 April 784 and ended on 28 March 803.

Rakai Panunggalan enthroned in Panaraban which is now Parakan area. Here is also found kademangan and ashes in Pakurejo Bulu area. Furthermore Rakai Panunggalan was replaced by Rakai Warak who is estimated to live in Tembarak. Here found ruins around Menggoro Mosque and the ruins of the temple and there is also Kademangan village. Rakai Warak's successor is Rakai Garung who reigned on 24 January from 828 to 22 February 847. This king is an expert in temple and astronomy.

He made a prey order that is still used today. Because of his versatility so King Sriwijaya want to use it to create a temple. But Rakai Garung does not want to be threatened. Then Rakai Garung replaced Rakai Pikatan who settled in Temanggung. Here found Inscription Tlasri and Wanua Tengah III. Besides that many ruins of ancient objects such as Lumpang Joni and sculptures scattered in Temanggung area. Here there is also Demangan village.

From the history book written by I Wayan Badrika mentioned that Rakai Pikatan as the king of Mataram Ancient wished to control the region of Central Java. But to seize power from the king of Bala Putra Dewa as ruler of Syailendra kingdom did not dare. So to achieve that purpose Rakai Pikatan made a strategy by marrying Dyah Pramudha Wardani brother of King Bala Putra Dewa with the aim to have a strong influence in the kingdom of Syailendra.

In addition Rakai Pikatan also collected the strengths that exist in the region both the soldiers and senapati and raised the costs derived from tributes demangs. At that time, who was entrusted to collect tribute was the most widespread Demang Gong. Rakai Pikatan gathered an army and went to the kingdom of Shaykendra on May 27, 855 AD to attack. In this attack Rakai Pikatan assisted Wood Fragrance and handed over the kingdom to the beliefs of the rank of demang. From the name demang and kademangan area then came the name Ndemanggung which eventually changed to the name Temanggung.

Historic Tourism Plengkung Kota Magelang

If we pass in Magelang City, we will find a plengkung-shaped building as well as existing buildings in Yogyakarta as the gate to enter the palace area. But the plengkung that exist in Magelang is the function is for the water channel. The building is a Dutch building.

Since the days of Dutch rule, the city of Magelang has been projected to be a comfortable residential area. As a proponent, plengkung was built supporting facilities in the form of city drains (Boog Kotta Leiding) that was spoken by the tongue inlander pronounced casually "Buk Kuto Ledeng". If the Javanese then called "Buk" as a wall of waterways, then it is indeed a misspelling of the word boog pronounced by Dutch meneers. The canal comes from Kali Manggis, Pucangsari, Kedungsari, North Magelang Subdistrict, and downstream in Jurangombo Village, Jagoan Village, South Magelang Sub District, Magelang City.

In addition to being built to provide for household needs, the canal was also used to clean household waste obtained from residential areas. Tha canal that utilized the gravity energy, by the colonial government installed a water pipe with a length of about 6.5 kilometers from Kali Manggis and ended in Jagoan village.

The pipe was made floating and placed on a mound of land that extends to resemble a fortress located in the middle of the city. But no source that mentions the origin of the land, workers and expenses required to make the mound.

The canal that extends and splited the city or often referred to as the Fly River or Aqua Duct. For the canal that cut off the highway, the Dutch government built a building resembling a fort (known to the public as Plengkung).

The beginning of the construction of plengkung was to open access between Grooteweg Noord Pontjol (now Ahmad Yani Street) next to the east there was Militaire Kampement (now known as Rindam IV Diponegoro) with Plengkoeng Road (now Pierre Tendean Road) to Badaan (Nieuws Officer Kampement). Because if the Dutch did not make plengkung, all land transportation would get difficulty to climb the mound of land that supports the water gutters are high enough. This situation that led to the Dutch East Indies government had idea to make plengkung that serves as a fly river.

At least, there are three plengkung of Magelang, such as

1. Plengkung in Jl. Piere Tendean in 1883 
as shown in the sculpture of this ancient building. This plengkung building was made with andesite stone construction but at the time of renovation in 2008, the composition is covered with cement. 
2. Jl. Daha / Tengkon Street (1893) 
3. And on Ade Irma Suryani street (1920).

On each plengkung, the height and width is average seven meters. Plengkung is included as a cultural heritage objects whose existence needs to be preserved.

According to the Head of Kota Toea Magelang Community, Mr. Bagus Priyana, Plengkung first was built in Jl. Piere Tendean, and last on Jl. Ade Irma Suryani that known as “Plengkung Baru”. In contrast to similar buildings such as in Yogyakarta that serves as a fortress. Plengkung in Magelang City is useful for plumbing and open road access.

For Plengkung in Jl. Piere Tendean, it was built with the function of opening road access along with the construction of military complex at Badaan Park (Nievws Officer Campement) and Military Command (Militair Kompement) in Rindam IV Diponegoro.

But in the era of the war of independence, Plengkung is also used by the fighters as a bastion of struggle. They often climbed up the Plengkung and confronted the weapons with the Dutch colonial government. So when the war of the fighters rises to the Plengkung, then from the water they defend and fight.

Plengkung that located on Jl. Daha, which at the time of construction consists of one main door and two supporting doors on the right and left side. At the time of Japan's entry into Indonesia, the two door supporters were covered with soil. on 1999 the cover was removed so that it returned to its original state.

Interesting Side of Plengkung Magelang City

In addition to being a legacy of the Dutch Colonial Government and including cultural heritage objects, there is another interesting side of this historic building. This canal was built on this colonial government serves as a means of irrigation, to waste the household waste, drains for fire systems and water reserves for steam locomotives that usually stopped at Magelang Station at that time. From the many functions of the canal, now there is no one left. Probably just an ordinary canal and instead used as a giant garbage by people who are not responsible.

The starting point of this canal is around Menowo. It is made by cutting off Kali Manggis, the main irrigation canal in Magelang which was also created by the colonial government. Starting from Menowo, walk along the water canal through Magelang square far into the Karet Village area which become the end point of this canal.

Actually there is nothing interesting if just walking down the stream of time. Wasting time and tiring. But this journey is interesting when on the way to catch the moments that make amazed. One of them is why this canal by the Magelang community is not known, unlike with the Manggis River. Precisely known as this canal is the existence of Plengkung / tunnel that cuts this channel.

Imagine viaduct but with a simple shape. The building is indeed in form and function is indeed a simple form of viaduct that introduced the Romans. Indeed the function of the water canal, with the construction made curved. So by the Javanese called Plengkung, from the shape of the curved tunnel itself. Actually Plengkung is quite unique because it is not planned to be made directly at the time this channel is created.

Plengkung making process was incidental and not built in one time, but attend to the development of the city. In the end of the third construction design of Plengkung is different, and manufacture time is also different. Third Plengkung earlier is Plengkung Baru, Plengkung Lama and Plengkung Tengkon.

All three plengkung have different designs and different manufacturing times. In addition to the construction of Plengkung, there are other details that are captured that encountered 3 towers on other canal. These three towers were parts of the disaster mitigation system created by the Colonial Government. Originally made as a disaster siren and a sign of a volcanic eruption, or another catastrophe like a fire.

However, in its development, this siren also serves as a marker of curfew and also sirens of attack on the city of Magelang. These last two functions were performed during the Dai Nippon colonial era. Indeed, the location of the tower is strategic sirine, located at an altitude and his voice reaches almost all corners of the city. But now, this tower is useless as an old iron. It does not function anymore as it does its original function and is even almost a loot on metal tracers.

How does this water canal pass through residential areas in Magelang? The question is quite intriguing. Colonial Government used to make segmentation of settlements in Magelang. It could be, that this is a fine segregation made by the Colonial Government. From this waterway, we were taken through military housing areas, Arabian territories, noble territories, Chinese areas to the latter is the indigenous region. The footsteps are clear as it travels through this water channel through the villages of colonial-era settlement segmentation.
