Mt. Tampomas; Mt Tompo Omas
Mount Tampomas is mentioned in the manuscript of ‘Pujangga Manik’ as ‘Mount Tompo Omas’ (Mount Gold Tampah , Java: tompo, tampah, tetampah) in Mĕdang Kahiangan area (now Sumedang area). This manuscript poet is probably written in the late 15th century
The peak of Mount Tampomas (locals call Sangiang Taraje) is a 1684 hectares wide land area of 1 hectare located at the very top of Mount Tampomas. This location has a high aesthetic because of this place tourists can enjoy beautiful views towards the city of Sumedang and surrounding areas. The presence of crater holes and large black rocks add a wealth of imagination to the viewer.
About 200 meters to the north from the top of Sangiang Taraje, there is a sacred tomb known as Pasarean. According to the story, the place is petilasan of Prabu Siliwangi and In Samaji during the Old Pajajaran kingdom.
