Even today Kedungjati is not very different from what it was in Bapak's time. The river still meanders through the classical Javanese countryside. The town takes its name from a bend in the river where there is a "kedung" that is an eddy or whirlpool, and a particularly large teak tree or "jati".

According to legend, Bapak's ancestor Sunan Kalijogo, who was one of the 9 walis or saints who spread Islam in Java, used to come here to pray and the graceful lean of the giant teak tree was caused by the power of Sunan Kalijogo, leaning against it.
