Candi Ngetos


Candi ini secara geografis terletak di Desa Ngetos, Kecamatan Ngetos (kurang lebih 15 km ke arah selatan Kota Nganjuk). Dibangun pada abad 15 ( jaman Kerajaan Majapahit) atas perintah Raja Hayam Wuruk pada sang paman Raja Ngatas Angin yaitu Raden Ngabehi Selopurwoto dengan patihnya Raden Bagus Condrogeni. Tujuan dari pembangunan candi tersebut adalah untuk tempat penyimpanan abu jenazah Hayam Wuruk jika kelak ia wafat. Alasan Hayam Wuruk ingin dimakamkan disana karena daerah Ngetos masih termasuk wilayah Majapahit serta posisi daeerah ini yang menghadap Gunung Wilis, dimana Gunung Wilis seolah-olah disamakan dengan Mahameru.
