The legend is also a hallmark of the presence of different Parangtritis Beach with other beaches in Indonesia. Parangtritis beach has a uniqueness in nature, culture, and religion in it.
Based on the information obtained from the community’s trust, Parangritis Beach became the embodiment of Trimurti unity in Jogja, ie from the north there is Mount Merapi as an element of fire, and the South is Parangtritis Beach as the element of water and the existence of the Jogja Palace that acts as a counterweight to both in an imaginary line.
It is said that Parangtritis Beach is also believed to be the gate of the South Sea kingdom led by Kanjeng Ratu Kidul, Nyo Roro Kidul. Thus, in Parangtritis Beach often found rituals, both by the Palace of Jogja and citizens sekitra.
One such ritual is Labuhan. In the ritual, the caretaker and the messenger from the Palace of Jogja wove the offerings to the high seas in the hope of obtaining blessings, salvation, and tranquility.
In addition to the mystery story of Nyai Roro Kidul, Parangtritis Beach is also told as a meeting place Panembahan Senopati with Sunan Kalijaga after Panembahan Senopati after undergoing hermitage.
So, fair if other than as a place of recreation, Parangtritis also become a sacred location. Not a few visitors come to meditate. This beach also became one of the place of the ceremony of Labuhan of Kraton Jogja.
Beginning Naming Beach Parangtritis
According to the history of the early naming of Parangtritis Beach is when an escape from the kingdom of Majapahit which reached the sea area with a large wavy. He meditated in that place. A lot of water is “tumaritis” or dripping from a “machete” or crevices of a rock. He then named it as parangtritis, or means water dripping from the crevice of the rock.
The myth then continued during the era of the kingdom of mataram. Javanese kings are believed to have a special relationship with the ruler of the South Sea is Nyi Roro Kidul. The relationship is believed to last until now. Even if my friend read srtikel about Yogyakarta Palace Tourism pal you will find that the construction of the palace was in harmony with the South coast.
According to one story, the relationship between the palace and the kings of Java with Nyi Roro Kidul originated from the semedi Panembahan Senopati, the founder of Mataram Islamic Kingdom who while meditating in the South Sea met with Nyi Roro Kidul. Interwoven love relationship between them and Nyi Roro Kidul then promised to help and keep in touch with the descendants of Panembahan Senopati.
Another myth that is believed in this beach is the ban on wearing a green shirt around the area of Parangtritis Beach. Green color is believed to be the favorite color of the queen launt South, and also the color of the troops clothing.
Wearing a green color is believed to make a pal will roll up the waves while swimming on the beach. Apart from all the myths that exist, Parangtritis Beach Visitors still have to be careful because the waves there can be spelled out very large. Hence, visitors are forbidden to bathe on the beach because the beach landscape is very steep and dangerous.
Visitors who travel to Parangtritis Beach generally get a warning not to bathe at certain moments and in certain locations as well. Parang beach waves are notoriously big. At certain times the wave height can reach 5 to 7 meters so spilling up into the parking lot.
The reason why the waves on this great Parangtritis Beach is probably because Parangtritis Beach is directly opposite the vast ocean, the Indian Ocean. The wind from across the mainland drove, pushing the waves without a hitch.
With high-speed wind-driven waves that hit the mainland so that the wave height reached 5 meters more. Compare with coastal beaches in other areas that are usually located between 2 islands.
Many get a visit, visitors drowning events are also common in Parangtritis Beach. Victims drowned in Parangtritis Beach is usually anyone, do not select choose age, not picky gender. Even though there is a stanby sar team on site plus a warning board to be careful while playing water on Parangtritis Beach, the death toll from drowning still happens.
Apparently the cause of the many victims drowned in Parangtritis Beach is due to the Rip curent. Rip current is a high-speed backflow to the high seas.
If there are 2 waves coming to the mainland from two different directions, the encounter 2 of the current generates a backflow that goes to the middle of the sea at a speed of 80 km / h more. If there are visitors who are bathing in the sea and happen to be in the area of this 2-wave encounter, then most likely he will be dragged into the middle and powerless to fight.
Every visitor who drowned, no matter how hard the effort to search usually the body of the victim was not immediately found that day. The body is usually found to float itself not far from its sinking location. This pattern then raises the notion that the bodies of the victims drowned in Parangtritis Beach hidden and borrowed for a moment by Nyi Roro Kidul.
After being observed, the bodies of the victims drowned in Parangtritis Beach is not because it is hidden by Nyi Roro Kidul. The reason is because in Parangtritis Beach there are 2 troughs. The first trough is located in southern South SAR team posts.
While the second is in front of the new terminal area. The trough jutted into the land at the bottom. If there are visitors who are dragged by the Rip Current, then for a while the position of the victim’s body will go into the trough is buried with sand sediment. The body will then be lifted by itself after a while with a change of direction of the waves
Reportedly South beach queen Nyi Roro Kidul really like the color green. In the painting, he is wearing a green shirt. Therefore visitors Parangtritis as much as possible forbidden to wear green clothes.
Afraid if wearing a green shirt, Nyi Roro kidul will love it and make the visitors are servants in the Southern coastal kingdom. Another term visitors with a green shirt will be drowned by Queen Nyi Roro Kidul.
Apparently according to the caretaker there is a ban on wearing green clothes that relate to the color of sea water in Parangtritis Beach is a little greenish. If visitors wear green clothes, and drowned then the SAR team will have difficulty in searching. The cause is because the color of his dress disguised with the color of sea water is also green. So, the ban on green clothes as favored by Nyi Roro Kidul is just a myth.
