Bojonegoro is a city in East Java, in Indonesia. My older sister has been living there with her husband since she works as a stated-owned junior high school teacher. I think it seems good if I take my blog readers to explore tourism natural objects in this city.
Bojonegoro actually has a lot of tourism objects. One of the most famous tourism places in Bojonegoro is eternal fire spot, which is the biggest in Asia.
Local people name the place Kayangan Api or fire heaven. Kayangan Api is the source of fire which never die. It is located in Sendangharjo, a village forest, kecamatan Ngasem. The forest in the village has covered at least 42,29% of its area.
According to the old story, Kayangan Api was the rest place of Mbah Kriyo Kusumo or Mpu Supa. He was also known as Mbah Pandhe of Majapahit old kingdom. On the west of Kayangan Api, there is a pond of mud containing sulfur.
Kayangan Api is categorized as a sacred place. In the old time, it was the place to make many sacred traditional weapons such as keris, spear, cundrik, etc. Today many people still think that the fire of Kayangan Api is sacred. Some of important traditional Javanese' ceremonies use its fire as a requirements. For example traditional Javanese event Jumenengan in Yogyakarta. Jumenengan is a program to establish new king in Yogyakarta kingdom.
