Candi Jago


Situs candi Jago adalah salah satu candi peninggalan kerajaan Singhasari yang terletak di desa Jago, kecamatan Tumpang, sekitar 22 Km dari arah kota Malang.

Pada awal mulanya, candi ini bernama Jayaghu dan merupakan salah satu candi pendarmaan atau makam bagi Maharaja Wisnuwardhana. Namun, jika dilihat dari bentuk arsitekturnya, candi ini memiliki unsur arsitektur dan pengaruh dari Majapahit. Hal ini bisa di telisik dari bukti sejarah bahwa pada tahun 1272 Saka atau 1350 Masehi, candi ini pernah diperbaiki oleh Adityawarman dan mengalami beberapa pemugaran pada kurun waktu akhir Majapahit di pertengahan abad ke 15.

Dilihat dari bentuk arsitekturnya, Candi Jago memiliki persamaan bentuk dengan punden berundak yang merupakan ciri bangunan religi dari zaman megalithikum yang mengalami kebangkitan kembali pada massa akhir majapahit. Pada keseluruhan bangunan memiliki panjang sekitar 23,71 M, lebar 14 M dan tinggi 9, 97 M. Karena pengaruh waktu, candi Jago telah mengalami banyak perubahan dan tidak utuh lagi. Meskipun demikian, pesona dan kewibaan era masa lampau masih bisa terlihat dengan jelas saat mengunjungi candi ini.
