Jambi’s History is Intermingled with Myths
Most countries have fascinating stories of historical characters which have been amazingly embellished. The USA has the story of George Washington and him cutting down an apple tree. Though that story most probably isn’t true, it has little affect on the foundation and documented history of the USA. The Jambi Province, however, never having documented it’s history until the 1900’s, has many orally transmitted myths (folklore) that have formed its history.
