The Centhini story is separated by phases of its characters' lives pre-adulthood, adulthood and post-adulthood and by the adventures of each character Jayengresmi, Jayengsari, Rancangkapti and Mas Cabolang.
In the pre-adulthood journey, geographic locations still can be identified on the real-world map. But in the post-adulthood journeys, the locations become mystical and imaginary, as though in a different realm.

Finally came a decisive moment when Ki Bayi's brothers Ki Jayengresmi and Ki Jayengrogo and their uncle Ki Kulowiryo determined to look for and to catch up with Amongrogo.
They departed, accompanied by Kulowiryo's attendant, Nuripin. Within their journey, they passed several villages, hermitages and caves. Ki Jayengrogo and Ki Kulowiryo are the morally loose characters as they did a lot of debauchery with the villagers, widowers and ronggeng dancers.
