This story comes from Tana Toraja, in South Sulawesi (Celebes).
Landorundun was a young beautiful girl with long hair.
One day she took a bath in the river, and combed her hair. One of her hair was fallen, and when she put it on a stone, the wind flew it to the river bank and it reached the middle of sea.
Landorundun's hair was glowing in the sunlight, and an adventurer, Bendurana saw it from his ship. He ordered his companions to take that hair, but all of them came back wounded.
Bendurana then walked on water, took the hair himself. He rolled the hair over his arm, and the hair turned to be very long. When he wondered the origin of the hair, a bird said to him where it came from. He followed the flock of the birds, and finally dropped the anchor to a stone, nowadays called Batu Sangkinan Lembang.
|Then Bendurana planted a mango tree, instantly grew and had fruits.|
This part seems very awkward but the bride who was forced to marry laughed at small entertainment is seen in several other myths. Anybody who knows the origin of this story, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
