This creature has small body with no more than 12 cm and a length of hair, and rarely pass rigid foot. People called it ‘ JENGLOT”. It said that jenglot is not a dead object. It seems he lives, but nothing ever know when to move. Some kind of ghost, that suddeny appear. If you view it from another angle, from the paranormal perspective, jenglot is a kind of "mummy" that perhaps 300 years old.

      I don't believe jenglot is anything more than monkey skeletons... you forgot to mention that 'keeper' of jenglots feed them with blood, and that even the red cross in indonesia will sell 'keepers' blood for the purpose. Also, you forgot to mention that their fingernails are supposed to grow and that they can do "favors" for their keepers...

      Eventhough i believe them to be fake,..I want to buy one before leaving indo...

      Just curious, but what exactly have the forensic experts said?

      Is it possible that these are ancient skeletons of people whose mummies have been shrunk down to such a small size? Sortof like how the head hunters shrink the skulls of the heads they collect.

      As I know jenglot is real.. but what I've heard Jenglot is not kind of mummy. Jenglot came from a human who wants to have a kind of supernatural, and they will end up become a Jenglot. Then the body will shrink like that,not dead but with no soul. Before they became Jenglot, they'll find a quiet or desolate place to transform as a Jenglot.

      Jenglot will do what the keeper wants, but they have to feed them. At first, the keeper fed them with human blood, but nowadays they can feed them by animal blood.

      @ Prasetio..maybe u can search abt "betarakarang" or sumthing like that..

      It's satanic. It's associated with black magic. It's evel. So, do not get involves with this jenglot. For Muslims, it's absolutely forbidden.

Thank you for your phone number. I myself am a Catholic-Spiritualists and i am interested in all Spirituality, as i do deal with spirits of the dead.

      Some people thought those things are a fake doll who made by paranormal, but some people believe this things are a human being who had learned the dark magic at their live and their appearance became like an animal for nefarious purposes (or we call it Siluman). when this kind of human died than God never accepted their soul and their body were not accepted by the earth.

      So their body will still exist forever until the end of this world, and the body will decreasing by size.

      I think we should to explore this things by compare the skin sample or hair or if there's a bone inside to the human body..

      Thanks, Edwin for share your topic about Jenglot. I agree with most of your thought. I know this was become dilemma when other people agree and the other side disagree. There are many research have done with this creatures. Most of this research did in the lab. The expert took the DNA sample from skin and hair. And I still wait the news about the result. Simple tips from me, we don't related with satan or devil. But we just believe there is another world beside this real world. Thank you very much for coming and give nice comment.

      Hi,

      If this is true, i can say it is a door of entry for Science to enter into supernatural world. If the concern person can share how they give life to this creatures we can do amazing things in the study of DNA(Micro biology),and by knowing its life span we can even use it for space science instead of putting monkeys(as they did in shuttle for moon) we can use this creature which is pritty intelligent.If it is pure ghost then we can learn their power of time travel, dimension travel .

      If even anyone above occurs it will change the world of science so you people why cant you take step on it.

      Good question, PaperNotes. I know there are many fake Jenglot outside. For common people maybe didn't knew the real jenglot and fake jenglot. But for the expert they can test about the truth of jenglot. I got the pictures similar with the photo in my local newspaper and it believed as a real jenglot. But I thought only God knows the truth of this creatures. Happy New Year.

      Thanks, Lady Azraelina for coming again. It's too difficult to find the real jenglot for now. Because there are many fake jenglots on the market. The people only get the profit and cheat for making fake creature. So, I can't guarantee to find the real Jenglot before see this creature in person. Actually I had enclose the contact person on my comment above. You can try to contact that number. As I know, the price was expensive. It's more than $20.000. I hope you understand. Or if you really need this creature you can send me a message by contact form and maybe I can give the solution for this thing. Thank you very much,

      Thanks, Nikhil pawas1993 for coming to this hub. There are many "real creatures" or "unseen creatures" in this world. Jenglot is good example. Jenglot is just a name for the little creature in my country. I think there are many creatures like this one from other country like Thailand, Philippine or India maybe with different name. I often see this for supernatural reason, like magic. I had never knew that type of this creatures are exported from India. But the creatures in the pictures above were found from Indonesia. But I hope we can see this case wisely. I do believe "GOD" than this creature.

      I have heard about Jenglot before, when I was in Indonesia. In that time, I discovered many pros and cros about that little ‘thing’. I am an Indonesian too, so I know that it has been tested by specialists; both paranormal and medical. This is an unusual thing that people could deny or believe. It just depends on our personal beliefs. For me personally, it’s just how people see it; based on their culture. People who are rich with culture may believe this kind of thing. It really interested me how people commented on Jenglot from many countries; once they knew about Jenglot, they knew something about Indonesia. And for you, Prasetyo, don’t you think that this is something that can allow people to know more about others’ culture, like Indonesia? I believe that, mystical or mythical, it was brought to create a peace among people by knowing each other’s culture. So, keep up the good work, let them know something different and unique about Indonesia, not just a bad thing about Indonesia.

But I want share about fact. If you read my hub, I had wrote about the beauty of Indonesia. You can check that hub and you'll find something beautiful about Indonesia related with tourism place.

      Hi Prasetio, I think you get it wrong. I love your writing! That's is why I said that, this is the thing that could bring something about Indonesia.. because Indonesia is a magical land ;) I love Indonesia. Thus, I do really believe that Jenglot does exist because I have been heard from news in Indonesia in that time. I interested with something mystical, mythical, and cultural.. You can check my blog if you have time http://magicalindonesia.wordpress.com/ . This is a good piece of works, I haven's see anyone write about the 'magical' Indonesia. For me and you its a fact but for others it might nothing, but we two can share about anything about Indonesia which can allow people to know more about Indonesia. I'm sorry if you think I don't like your writing, but I do love your writing, its really shows the other side of Indonesia. Nice!

      Hi Prasetyo,

      Sorry it took a long time to reply. I have many things to do in university. Anyway, yes we do have a passion for making Indonesia as well-known as other countries. Let’s share with them how nice Indonesia is. I will share with them how mystical it is; it will be so interesting because many places in Indonesia have their own ‘rule’ and its good for them to be known. Believe it or not, many unusual things happened in many places in Indonesia and they do have witnesses. Have a great day, Prasetyo.

Say a lot stories about it. They even call it a gods in a particular river and for that mater it husband is back to fight the people who are working at the dame.

      Who ever found this creature should come out and tell us how he or she manage to capture this creature to the world and I think it will do so much for him and also the young people around the world.

      As a practitioner of traditional sorcery I can give you my opinion about Jenglot. I believe that these are two different things; one is a hoax created by jokers and rip-off artists and are just made out of different animal bones and skins with no more magic in them than what people who believe in them would charge them with and soon some roaming spirit or soul could take seat within it and enjoy the offerings or emotional energies that it would receive.

      The other version is again a kind of doll created by putting together different animal parts (skin, teeth, claws, bones, hair of human) and also some herbal components, but this time they are made by a shaman and infused with a spirit/soul in order to perform magical work. These are like animated dolls (anima=soul) and must be treated as living creatures. They will not be physically living and can not walk or move, but the spirit within can and will walk, move and work and aid its owner, as long as it is taken care of.

      In other words a real jenglot is still a spirit fetish/doll created by a magician. It is not a former human shaman that have turned into a mummy or anything like that.

      Similar kind of fetish creation can for example be found in Thai and Khmer traditions.

At the same time, I learn many things from you. But I wrote this hub based on the fact where it found by special people (paranormal). Though we can find kind of fake Jenglot in the back market. Like you said above: the fake Jenglot made by animal parts. I believe that the magic practitioners can easily found in Thai. Take care!
