A long time ago Banyuwangi was called Blambangan. It was a kingdom under a wise king who had a handsome and smart son. Raden Banterang was his name. He liked hunting very much.
Raden Banterang : “Dad ,, I want to hunt today. Please allow me, Dad !”
King : “What again .. ?”
Raden Banterang : “Yes father, please!
King : “Well, father let you hunt.”
Raden Banterang : “Thanks Dad.”
King : “Yes, be careful my son.”
Raden Banterang : “OK Dad, I’m going now.”
After getting permission from His father, Raden Banterang called Aria for preparing hunting equipment.
Raden Banterang : “Aria…. !!!”
Aria : “Yes, Sir.”
Raden Banterang : “Please, help me to prepare some hunting equipment!”
Aria : “Yes, Sir. Just it, Sir.”
Raden Banterang : “Yes, because this morning I’m going to hunt in the woods.”
Aria : “Yes, Ready Sir.”
Raden Banterang : “Oke, you must accompany me.”
Aria : “Yes, Sir.”
After hunting equipment ready. He went to the forest around Blambangan to hunt for animals. But in Mid Street, he saw a deer. He chased it and the deer ran deeper into the forest. His horse was so good and strong that he left his guards behind. Unfortunately, he lost the deer.
Raden Banterang : “Where deer that? Will I find it? But I’m very tired. I must to break now. Whoa… coincidence that there is a riverfront. Hem, the river water is fresh.” (Raden Banterang drinking river water)
Raden Banterang drinks the river water. After that, he left the river. But only a few steps to walk, he took a rest under a big banyan tree suddenly a lovely lady appeared in front of him. Raden Banterang was very surprised to see a beautiful girl alone in the forest. He was suspicious that she was not a human being. So he asked her.
Raden Banterang : “Excuse me, You’re names? Do you live around here ?”
Surati : “No, I’m from Klungkung, Bali. My name is Surati. I’m a princess from there. I need your help”
Raden Banterang : I will help you, but please tell me. What your problem ?”
Surati : “I’m in danger. There was a rebellion in Klungkung. The rebel killed my father but I could it. My guards took me here but I lose them. Now I’m alone. I don’t know where to go. Please, help me”
Raden Banterang : “Ok, You are coming to the right person. I’m prince Banterang from the kingdom of Blambangan. I will protect you. Please come with me. Come on !”
Then Raden Banterang took Surati home. He fell in love with her and then several months later he married her. One day when Surati was in the street he met a man. The man called him. She was surprised to realize that the man was her brother Rupaksa. Rupaksa told her that it was Raden Banterang who killed their father. He came to Blambangan to take revenge and asked surati to join him. Surati was shocked but she refused to join.
Rupaksa : “Surati, Surati”
Surati : “Brother … !!”
Rupaksa : “Surati, I came here to take revenge, because Raden Banterang has killed
our father .”
Surati : “I’m really shocked. But I’m not sure. Raden Banterang is now my husband. He’s very kind to me. He never hurts me. He’s protecting me. I will never betray him.”
Rupaksa : “What …! You’re married to him? And you don’t want to help me?”
Surati : “Yes, forgive me” (sad)
Rupaksa : “But he killed our father.”
Surati : “It’s hard for me to believe it.”
Rupaksa : “OK then. I have to go now. But please keep my headdress. Put it under
your pillow.” (angry)
Rupaksa gave his headdress to his sister Surati. To respect her older brother Surati put it under her pillow. Several days later Raden Banterang was hunting in a forest when he met a man that looked like a priest. The man greeted him politely. Then he said something.
Rupaksa : “Our life is in danger. Someone has an evil intention to you.”
Raden Banterang : “Who is he ?”
Rupaksa : “Your wife, Surati”
Raden Banterang : “Surati? How do you know?”
Rupaksa : “I am a priest. I have a clear spiritual vision. I just want to save you. Search her room. If you find a headdress under her pillow then my words are correct. It is from a man who will help her kill you.”
Raden Banterang : “Thank you, your Holiness.”
Raden Banterang was shocked. He was very angry with his wife then he immediately went home. When he got to the palace he immediately searched Surati’s bedroom. As he found the headdress under her pillow he was sure that the priest was right.
Raden Banterang : “You are an unfaithful wife. I know that you want me dead. This is the evidence. This is from a man who will help you kill me. Tell me who he is?”
Surati : “It’s my brother’s headdress. I met him several days ago when you went hunting. He gave me this and told me to put it under my pillow. So I did. He wants to kill you, not me.” (Shocked and cried)
But Raden Banterang did not trust her. He gave her a death sentence. He took his wife to a riverbank as he would stab his wife and throw her body into the river.
Surati : “Before I die, let me say a few words.”
Raden Banterang : “Please do”
Surati : “After I throw my body in here. If the water becomes dirty and smelly, it means that I am guilty. But if the water becomes clear and fragrance, it means that I am innocent.”
Then Raden Banterang would stab her wife with a kris Surati threw herself into the river. Amazingly the water became clear and fragrance came out of it. Surati was innocent! Raden Banterang regretted his emotional behavior. Since then on he changed the name of his kingdom into Banyuwangi. Banyu means water and Wangi menas fragrance. Because it, Banyuwangi’s name later became the name of the city of Banyuwangi.
