The Curse Princess and the Magic Monkey

The legend of the Cursed Princess and the Magic Monkey as known as “LUTUNG KASARUNG” is a Sundanese folklore tale from Indonesia. Set in the heaven called Svargaloka (khayangan), there lived a handsome and powerful god named Prince Guruminda. He had almost become the highest god in the heaven; but in his pride, he defied Batari Sunan Ambu, the highest mother goddess in Sundanese mythology. As punishment, he was cursed and banished from heaven and incarnated upon earth as a black lutung monkey, in which body he was condemned to live until he could learn humility and earn the sincere love of a woman.
Meanwhile, on earth, Prabu Tapa Agung, the aging king of Pasir Batang, had seven daughters. Among them were Purbasari who was kind and good-hearted, while her older sister Purbararang was wicked. Because of this, the king wanted Purbasari to succeed him when he retired.
