Legend and history of Parangtritis beach

This beach in the south of Yogyakarta is said to be called Parangtritis because this is where Prince Dipokusumo fled. This incident occurred during the Majapahit Kingdom era. Prince Dipokusumo fled to the beach and made this place a place to meditate.

He found a large rock that had flowing water droplets. Parang means “coral” while Tritis means “drip”. This is where the name Parangtritis came from.

On the other hand, Parangtritis beach cannot be separated from the legend of Nyi Roro Kidul who was the princess of the Sunda Kingdom who was expelled from her kingdom. Nyi Roro Kidul really likes the color green so her clothes are all green.

Starting from here, there was a ban on Parangtritis Beach from wearing green clothes. It is said that if we visit Parangtritis Beach Yogyakarta wearing green clothes, Nyi Roro Kidul will be interested and eventually make us her followers.

Although it is known that this prohibition only applies to the Parangtritis Beach tourist area, in fact the same prohibition also exists in other south coast tourist areas such as Pelabuhan Ratu Beach, Pangandaran, Cilacap, and beaches in East Java.
