IF- Tales and Legend

A folklore about the eclipse from Indonesia, the details is from Bali, and the one that I know is from Java :). Peoples used to play ‘kentongan‘- a traditional alarm system made from bamboo, that can give a very loud sound, it was meant to scared the ‘Kala’ and make the moon free again..


Kala Rahu’s head, angry at the Sun and Moon for reporting the theft pursues them through the sky and swallows one or the other, since Kala Rahu has no body the sun or moon will reappear after passing his mouth.
