He did the robbery with two goals, one against the authority as a ruler Tunggul Ametung Tumapel, the high tax burden to its people because Tumapel have to pay taxes to Kediri. Of course Tunggul Ametung hated people. Arok second objective is to build its own armed forces to fight with the strength Tumapel and Kediri.
Tumapel gets a small number of very highly paid tribute to the ruler of the kingdom of Kediri.
Akuwu Tunggul Ametung very furious with the disruption of security in the territory of the adverse financial Tumapel country and resulted in delays payment of tribute for Kediri. To get revenge on the robbers who disadvantageous, Tunggul Ametung illegally attacked monasteries Shiva in order to collect gold to meet tribute to Kediri. Ritual tools made of gold Arok was later returned to the monastery in question.
