The origin of the discovery of the tomb site was actually accidental. So, at that time the cemetery was still surrounded by dense forest trees and there was a large banyan that protected its cupola. The condition of the tomb was very clean, without falling branches or leaves.

According to myth, whoever crosses the tomb will fall. The carcasses of birds and forest animals found around the area are proof of this.

With such a story, one of the residents took the initiative to invite the Banten spiritual cleric to find a solution. Then, a ritual is held and in order to eliminate the supernatural influence that envelops the tomb, water is poured from the headwaters of the Cisadane River on Mount Salak, Bogor.

The cupola of the tomb was also given a stone from there. As a result, these sacred graves no longer endanger living things around them.
