Long time ago there lived a king of Daha Kingdom named Kertamarta. He had two daughters
named Dewi Galuh and Candra Kirana. Candra Kirana was a very beautiful and kind girl but his
sister was an evil. One day, Candra Kirana was engaged to a prince of Kahuripan Kingdom
named Raden Inu Kertapati who was handsome and wise.

This engagement made Dewi Galuh envied to his sister. Then she went to a witch to harm
Candra Kirana. The witch agreed to do what Dewi Galuh asked. When Candra Kirana was
walking around the palace garden, the witch came and cursed her. She transformed her into a
golden snail. After that, Dewi Galuh threw her which has become a snail in the river.

One day, an old woman was looking for fish in the river using nets. When she was about to lift
the net, she saw a golden snail transported. Then she brought the golden snail went home and put
it in a jar. The next day, she returned to the river to look for fishes but unfortunately she did not
get any fish. She was disappointed and returned to her house. However when she arrived, she
was very surprised to see a lot of delicious dishes had been presented at the top of the table.

This incident occurred over and over in the next days. The old woman was curious. She finally
decided to find out who did it to her by pretending to go to the river. She hid behind her house
and peeked at what’s going on inside. Then she saw the snails turned into a beautiful woman and
cooked meals for her. Soon the old woman came into her house, “Who are you?” Asked the old
woman “I was a princess of Daha were cursed by a witch into a golden snail” said her. After
telling what had happened to her, she was invited Chandra Kirana to stay with her.

The news of Candra Kirana’s loss made prince Inu Kertapati confused and sad. He searched for
her all over the kingdom by disguising as a villager. The witch knew what was done by him. She
was disguised as a raven to disrupt the prince’s effort to meet Candra Kirana. On his own way
Prince Inu Kertapati was helped by an old man who was great. He hit the bird with his stick until
it died. Prince Inu thanked to him. He also told the intent and purpose of his journey. After
knowing what had happened, the old man told Prince Inu to search her in Dadapan village.
Afterwards the prince traveled to the Dadapan Village right away.

After walking for days, the prince arrived in the Dadapan Village. He was very thirsty at that
time. Then he saw a small hut and approached it. Suddenly he was shocked because he saw his
fiancée was cooking through the window. He immediately entered the hut to see her. Finally they
were both very happy because they met and the magic was lost. Then the princess told what had
happened to her and she also introduced the old woman who had helped her to the prince. The
prince was very grateful to the old woman. Then he brought Candra Kirana and the old woman
to the palace. After arriving at the palace, the king was happy because her daughter had returned.
He also knew what had happened to his daughter. Knowing his sister had been found, Candra
Galuh run away from the palace because she was afraid of being punished by his father. Finally
Candra Kirana and Raden Inu Kertapati were married and they lived happily ever after.
Keong Mas

Pada zaman dahulu hiduplah seorang Raja yang bernama Kertamarta dari Kerajaan Daha. Sang
raja memiliki 2 orang putri yang bernama Dewi Galuh dan Candra Kirana. Candra Kirana adalah
gadis yang sangat cantik dan baik tetapi saudaranya yang adalah seorang gadis yang jahat. Pada
suatu hari Candra Kirana bertunangan dengan seorang pangeran dari Kerajaan Kahuriapan yang
bernama Raden Inu Kertapati yang tampan dan bijaksana.

Pertunangan ini membuat Dewi Galuh iri kepada Candra Kirana, kemudian dia menemui seorang
nenek sihir untuk mencelakai saudaranya itu. Sang penyihir itupun setuju untuk memenuhi
permintaannya. Ketika Candra Kirana sedang berjalan di sekitar taman istana, Nenek sihir itu
datang dan mengutuknya. Dia merubah Candra Kirana menjadi seekor keong mas. Lalu Dewi
Galuh membuang Candra Kirana yang telah menjadi seekor keong mas di sungai.

Pada suatu hari seorang nenek sedang mencari ikan di sungai dengan menggunakan jala. Ketika
dia hendak mengangkat Jalanya, dia melihat seekor keong emas terangkut. Lalu dia membawa
Keong Emas itu pulang ke rumahnya dan menaruhnya di dalam sebuah tempayan. Keesokan
harinya, wanita itu kembali ke sungai untuk mencari ikan tetapi dia tak mendapatkan ikan
seekorpun. Dia sangat kecewa lalu dia kembali pulang kerumahnya. Namun ketika dia sampai, ia
sangat terkejut melihat banyak masakan yang enak sudah tersaji di atas meja.

Kejadian tersebut kembali terjadi pada hari-hari berikutnya. Nenek tersebut bingung. akhirnya
dia memutuskan untuk mencari tahu siapa yang melakukan dengan berbohong pergi ke sungai.
Dia bersembunyi di belakang rumanhya dan mengintip apa yang sedang terjadi di dalam. Dia
melihat keong mas yang dia pelihara berubah menjadi seorang wanita cantik dan memasak
makanan untuknya. Kemudian nenek itu masuk ke dalam rumah, ” Siapa dirimu ?” tanya nenek
itu “aku adalah putri kerajaan Daha yang disihir menjadi keong emas oleh penyihir saudaraku”
kata keong emas. Setelah menceritakan kejadian yang dialaminya, nenek itu mempersilahkan
Candar Kirana untuk tinggal bersamanya.

Kabar tentang hilangnya Candra kirana membuat pangeran Inu Kertapati bingung. Dia
mencarinya ke seluruh penjuru kerajaan dengan cara menyamar sebagai rakyat biasa. Nenek sihir
mengetahui apa yang dilakukan oleh Pangeran Inu Kertapati. Dia menyamar sebagai seekor
burung gagak untuk mengangu usaha sang pangeran untuk menemui sang putri. Di perjalanan
Pangeran Inu di bantu oleh seorang lelaki tua yang sakti. Dia memukul burung itu dengan
tongkatnya hingga burung itu mati. Pangeran Inu sangat berterima kasih kepada lelaki itu dan dia
juga menceritakan maksud dan tujuan perjalanannya. Setelah mengetahui apa yang terjadi, lelaki
tua itu menyuruh Pangeran Inu untuk mencari di desa dadapan. Pangeran itu kemudian
melanjutkan perjalanan ke desa dadapan.

Setelah berjalan berhari-hari, sang pangeran tiba di desa Dadapan. Dia merasa sangat haus. Lalu
dia melihat sebuah gubuk kecil dan menghampirinya. Tapi kemudian dia terkejut, karena dari
balik jendela ia melihat tunangannya sedang memasak. Segera ia memasuki gubuk itu untuk
menemuinya. Akhirnya mereka berdua sangat bahagia karena telah bertemu dan sihir itu pun
hilang. Kemudian sang putri menceritakan kejadian yang dialaminya dan juga memeperkenalkan
Nenek yang telah menolongnya kepada sang pangeran. Sang pangeran sangat berterima kasih
kepada nenek itu dan membawa nya bersama Candra Kirana ke istana. Sesampainya di Istana,
Sang raja merasa gembira karena putrinya telah kembali. Dia juga mengetahui apa yang terjadi
kepada anaknya itu. mengetahui hal tersebut, Candra Galuh melarikan diri dari istana karena
takut dihukum oleh ayahnya itu. Akhirnya pernikahan Candra kirana dan Raden Inu
Kertapatipun berlangsung dan mereka hidup bahagia selamanya.
Once upon a time, there was a couple living in a palace. They were Prince Raden Putra and Dewi
Limaran. Prince Raden Putra's father was the king of the kingdom.

One day, Dewi Limaran was walking around in the palace garden. Suddenly she saw a snail. It
was ugly and disgusting.

"Yuck!" said Dewi Limaran and then she threw it away into a river.

She did not know that the snail was actually an old and powerful witch. She could transform
herself into anything. The witch was angry to Dewi Limaran. The witch put a spell on her and
changed her into a golden snail. The witch then threw it away into the river.

The golden snail was drifting away in the river and got caught into a net. An old woman was
fishing and used her net to catch some fish. She was surprised to see a golden snail in her net.
She took it and brought it home. When the old woman woke up in the morning, she was
surprised that the house was in the good condition.

The floor was mopped. And she also had food on the table. She was thinking very hard.

"Who did this to me? The person is very kind." It happened again and again every morning.

The old woman was very curious. One night she decided to stay up late. She was peeping from
her room to know who cooked for her. Then, she could not believe what she saw. The golden
snail she caught in the river turned into a beautiful woman. The old woman approached her.

"Who are you, young girl?"

"I am Dewi Limaran, Ma'am. A witch cursed me. I can change back as a human only at night,"
explained Dewi Limaran.

"The spell can be broken if I hear the melody from the holy gamelan," continued Dewi Limaran.

The old woman then rushed to the palace. She talked to Prince Raden Putra about her wife.

Prince Raden Putra was so happy. He had been looking for his wife everywhere.

He then prayed and meditated. He asked the gods to give him the holy gamelan. He wanted to
break the witch's spell. After several days praying and meditating, finally gods granted his wish.
He immediately brought the holy gamelan to the old woman's house. He played it beautifully.
And then amazingly the golden snail turned into the beautiful Dewi Limaran.
The couple was so happy that they could be together again. They also thanked the old woman for
her kindness. As a return, they asked her to stay in the palace.
