Is a group of large rocks which now no longer uniform. If one looks closely, still visible a pattern of regularity. Located at a distance of about 200 m on the south side punden berundak Saunggalah, located in the middle of rice field plots. Originally a small hill covered with soil, when land is cleared there is a "barn stone" is, AMSumawijaya named Megalithic Kadoya with Jagaraksa site.
Archaeological phenomena, among others, found a stone structure retrieval form bands, whose position has been severely disrupted, some great menhirs of flat stones that have tilted or collapsed. One of the great menhir-sized, 1.96 m tall tallest, and widest width is 1.55 m. In the western part of the site there are two standing stones aligned as if to "entrance" to the inside which was filled with large stones.
Other megalithic relics in the region and beyond namely punden Sindangbarang Rucita, punden Ater Sand, Sand punden karamat I, II karamat punden Sand, Stone punden distorted, punden Stone chairs, flat stones Patilasan Surya geographical, it is estimated there are 63 sites. Megalithic sites were now located in the middle of township residents, amid paddies, or land that is sacred because it was considered haunted.
Sindangbarang relative archaeological chronology, based on the presence of Taman Sri Bagenda, can be connected with the royal palace which has 5 buildings Sunda keratonnya (Punta Bima Sri Narayana Madura Suradipati). The remaining part of the Garden of Sunda Kuna Sri Bagenda palace today is crystal clear springs (wells Jalatunda) and ponds that are likely to first be furnished with kambangnya bale building (there are two large stone in the middle of the pond as the plinth of the building). Taman Sri Bagenda formerly scenic and beautiful course, on the slopes of Mount Salak, land terraced gardens built (patio-terrace wall was left until now).
Perhaps once there is the road that connects the palace Pakuan Pajajaran located on the east side of River Park Ciomas and Sri Bagenda complex located on the west river area. In the park that was the king of Sunda Kuna and relatives before going appease themselves and also meditate facing Hyang that lies in the top of Mount Salak. If the texts speak about the Java-Bali Taman Century Bagenda around 15-16, then at that time that Park Bagenda known, of course, also known as the Sunda Kuna cultural environment. Can be estimated that the Park Sri Bagenda first function and play a role in about the last era of Sunda kingdom (15th century to early 16th century AD).
Punden monumental staircase and other large stones is a rite of equipment built around the same time, the purpose is to glorify Hyang well. Maybe once the various megalithic was built by the kingdom of Sunda Kuna who live around the center of the kingdom of Sunda, if Pakuwan Pajajaran located in Bogor, it is logical only if the northern slope of Mount Salak filled by various forms of megalithic as a means of worshiping Hyang. When the Islamic army invaded and seized the center of Banten kingdom of Sunda (Pakuwan Pajajaran), by itself Taman Sri Bagenda and various media worshiping Hyang on the north slope of Mount Salak was ignored until now is left only remnants.
Temporary interpretation that can be put forward is very possible that shaped megalithic archaeological Sindangbarang in the region are from the last phase of the ancient kingdom of Sunda, is located in the historical era, not from the prehistoric period. Thus it can be stated that at the end of the Sunda kingdom still known ancient forms of megalithic tradition, a rite of worship and Karuhun Hyang the media using the monument or structure which was done in a simple stone.
The existence of the ever-serentaun ceremony held every year in the region Sindangbarang to increase public appreciation of these ancient relics. Sites adjacent to the City of Bogor, will be able to bring a positive impact on its utilization, such as for tourism. The existence of the dilemma is always faced by the newly discovered site, but there kekahwatiran need to be public if the public knows will come in droves and trying to have a certain artifacts from the site illegally.
