There is a myth of a breakup in Telaga Wahyu, Magetan. The myth is that a pair of lovers who come to the lake will end their love story.

From the direction of Magetan city, Telaga Wahyu is before Telaga Sarangan. It’s on the left side of the road. In the past, the name was not Telaga Wahyu, but Telaga Urung.

Telaga Wahyu is included in Plaosan Sub-district/Sub-district, bordering Sarangan Village. The myth of a breakup at Telaga Wahyu was confirmed by one of the village officials, Sukiran. According to him, the myth has developed since time immemorial.
“It’s a myth that if dating people visit Telaga Urung (which is now Telaga Wahyu) their love relationship will crack or break up, it’s been developing since a long time ago,” explained Sukiran.
Sukir is familiarly called Mbah Sambong. He said the myth had no proof.
“The myth of going out to Telaga Wahyu makes breaking up with a boyfriend seems like it’s just the belief of each person,” said Mbah Sambong.
