There are twenty-five cantos, and each ones tells a different story. Some of them show how the warriors built Jangar's palace, how they defeated outside invaders, how they conquered other territories, and the warriors' marriage prospects which unveil their various destinies. Although these cantos are mostly independent of one another, there are also subtle connections between them. The opening canto describes the greatness of Jangar himself in that it describes his various advantures, heoric deeds, and his own romantic prospect (Gejin 403-4).
