Candi Sawentar


Candi Sawentar terletak di Desa Sawentar, Kecamatan Kanigoro, Blitar, Jawa Timur. Di dalam Kitab Negarakertagama, Candi Sawentar disebut juga Lwa Wentar. Bangunan candi ini dahulu merupakan sebuah kompleks percandian, karena disekitarnya masih ditemukan sejumlah pondasi yang terbuat dari bata.

Candi Sawentar diduga dibangun pada awal berdirinya Kerajaan Majapahit. Candi yang terbuat dari batu andesit ini berukuran panjang 9,53 m, lebar 6,86 m dan tingginya 10,65 m. Pintu masuk menuju bilik berada di sebelah barat, dengan ornamen makara pada pipi tangga, sedangkan relung-relungnya terdapat pada setiap dinding luar tubuh candi.

Di dalam ruangan bilik ditemukan akas arca dengan pahatan burung garuda, yang dikenal sebagai kendaraan Dewa Wisnu. Berdasarkan hal ini dapat diketahui bahwa Candi Sawentar merupakan bangunan suci yang berlatar belakang agama Hindu.
