The myth

Mount Sumeru is the center of universe in Buddhist cosmology and by extension Hindu cosmology. The legend said that the mountain was transported from India to the western part of Java island. However, the island started to tip as a result, thus the mountain is being moved eastward.

The Fact

Mount Sumeru is located in the eastern part of Java island and is an active volcano. It is known as the highest peak in Java, 3,676 m above sea level.
