It is said that according to folklore or local folklore, the giant rock of Dark Hill is a meteor that fell on the land of Sintang. But, there is also a legend that is no less legendary, that this giant stone fell when a powerful young Dayak man wanted to lift it to close the Kapuas River.

Because of their arrogant and greedy nature, the powerful young man named Bujang Beji haughtily intends to close the river with the power of his knowledge, so that the fish in the Kapuas and Melawi rivers can only be taken by him.

Then, there was a princess who was also able to find reason so that Bujang Beji's bad wishes could be thwarted, the princess then collected the thorns and sprinkled them on the path that Bujang Beji was going through.

Sure enough, a thorn stabbed Sebeji's feet as he carried the stone. Bujang Beji fell down, he was angry to the point of lifting the stone he had dropped in the current place called Dark Hill. According to the legend. (*)
