Ken Dedes original sculpture (historical heritage) @ city of Malang

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Ken Dedes is the name of the consort of the Kingdom Tumapel founder Ken Arok (Singhasari).

He then considered the ancestor of the kings who ruled in Java, ancestors Rajasa dynasty, the ruling dynasty in Singhasari and Majapahit.

Local tradition says it is as a woman who has a remarkable beauty, the perfect embodiment of beauty.

Ken Dedes figures only contained in Pararaton manuscript written hundreds of years after Tumapel and Majapahit era, so the truth is quite doubtful.

His name was not at all present in Nagarakretagama or any inscriptions.

Pararaton author may want to create a special Majapahit ancestral figure, ie a woman who shines her nakedness.

Privilege is an absolute requirement that coveted Java community in a leader or his ancestors.

Javanese people believe that the king is God's choice.

Ken Dedes itself an ancestor of the kings of Majapahit Pararaton version.

Then, he was told from the beginning already have signs as nareswari woman.

In addition he also said that he as a Buddhist who has mastered the science of karma amamadang, or a way to escape from samsara.

In the story of the death of Ken Arok can be deduced that Ken Dedes is a murder witness Tunggul Ametung.

Strangely, she had willingly married to her husband's killer.

This proves that between Ken Dedes and Ken Arok true love, so he supports the plan to murder Tunggul Ametung.

Keep in mind also that the marriage of Ken Dedes with Tunggul Ametung based on a sense of compulsion.
