The origins of the West Java capital

Enter the first truth, the origin of the name Bandung which may not be known to many people including the people in it. So this flower city was actually built in the process of building the Sitaram River from the lava that was outsourced by The Guban Opera. The built area is believed to be a city to be called the word Bandung, which comes from the word weir.

But there are also those who mention that the origin of the city name is the philosophy of Sundan, which has a sacred sentence like “nge-Bandung-an Banda Indung,” it appears to mean everything that exists and lives on earth as well as the atmosphere of asking for life and inanimate objects.

The capital of West Java is one of the areas still densely populated with sundanese cultures, so it can be said that Bandung has a fairly theoretical name in which it includes nature as the site of all the organisms and inanimate objects to be born and living on Earth and its existence will be witnessed by all powerful people.
