Candi Reog


Candi Reog atau biasa juga disebut Candi Sadon adalah sebuah candi peninggalan jaman kerajaan Erlangga yang terletak di dusun Sadon, desa Cempoko, kecamatan Panekan, Magetan.

Biasa di sebut candi Sadon karena candi ini berada di dusun Sadon, akan tetapi candi ini juga dikenal dengan candi Reog karena di reruntuhan candi terdapat Kalamakara. Kalamakara adalah arca raksasa Kala yang berwajah mirip harimau di topeng Dhadhakmerak, sebuah topeng kepala harimau dengan hiasan susunan bulu merak yang bisa di pakai untuk reog.

Di sebelah timur kompleks candi Sadon, tepatnya di depan pemakaman desa, terdapat candi kecil bernama Candi Reca Sapi (arca sapi). Ukuran candi ini sangat kecil, jauh lebih kecil dibandingkan dengan kebanyakan candi yang terdapat di Jawa Timur. Candi yang diperkirakan merupakan candi Hindu tersebut ditemukan pertama kali pada tahun 1971 oleh Sudiro, penduduk setempat. Ketika diketemukan, candi tersebut tertutup rumpun bambu.
