Patung Joko Dolog

Patung Joko Dolog, terletak di taman Apsari, Surabaya. Menurut legenda, patung ini dibuat pada 1211 Saka atau 1289 M di makam Wurarare [Lemahtulia], yang merupakan rumah Mpu Bharadah di desa Kedungwulan, dekat kota Nganjuk, Jawa Timur.

Patung ini dibuat untuk menghormati Putra Kertanegara, yaitu Wisnu Wardhana sebagai raja Singosari pada saat itu. Dia terkenal karena kebijaksanaannya, pengetahuan luas di bidang hukum dan ketaatan kepada agama Buddha dan cita-cita yang ingin mempersatukan bangsa Indonesia.

Menurut Bupati Surabaya, Patung Joko Dolog ditemukan di kandang gajah. Pada 1827 pada era pemerintah Hindia Belanda, yang berada di bawah Residen De Salls, memindahkan patung itu ke Surabaya dan ditempatkan di taman Apsari. Patung ini sering dikunjungi oleh beberapa orang yang ingin menghormati nilai sejarah yang ada.
