Dragons usually support figures in myths or legends. However, there are significant differences in beliefs between Western and Eastern cultures about dragons. In Western cultural mythology, Europe in particular is portrayed as a symbol of evil, a figure of bad character, a tendency to be destructive, and regarded as an enemy to be eliminated. Some European mythologies state that one who can slay a dragon is called a hero. While in the eyes of Eastern culture, the dragon figure is known as a symbol of power, excellence, glory and prosperity.


In Javanese culture, especially in ancient Javanese architecture, dragons were found in the era of the kingdoms of East Java, from the 10th to the 16th century. The oldest is found in the Jalatunda valley on the slopes of Mount Penanggungan . A dragon appeared around the bottom of the pseudo-phallus in the great pool. Dragon means snake (male) in Sanskrit. But in Java itself, the dragon refers more to the snake god who manifests as a figure of a magical creature in the form of a giant serpent. Javanese dragons are also depicted with crowns on their heads, sometimes also with earrings and necklaces. The Javanese dragon is considered a protective figure or protector, so it is often found in the carvings of gates, entrances or stairs of sacred buildings to protect the building in which it is located. In ancient Javanese culture, dragons were often associated with water and fertility.
