Jawi Temple (Indonesia name: Candi Jawi) real name is Jajawa is a temple that was built around the 13th century and is a historic relic Singhasari Hindu-Buddhist kingdom. Located at the foot of Mount Welirang, precisely in the village of Candi Wates, Prigen district, Pasuruan, East Java, Indonesia, about 31 kilometers from the town of Pasuruan. the temple is situated in the middle of the highway between Pandaan District - District Prigen and Pringebukan. Candi Jawi much thought of as a place of worship or places of worship Buddha, but it is actually a safe place pedharmaan or ashes of the last king Singhasari, Kertanegara. Most of the ash is also stored in the temple Singhasari. The second has to do with the temple Jago Temple which is a place of worship the King Kertanegara. In stanza 56 Negarakertagama mentioned that Jawi Temple was established by order of the last king of the Kingdom Singasari, Kertanegara, to a place of worship for Shiva-Buddhist religions. King mammal is an adherent of the teachings of Shiva-Buddhist syncretism.
The reason Kertanegara build Jawi temple far from the center of the kingdom because of the region's alleged followers of Shiva-Buddha's teachings are very powerful. The people in that area are very loyal. Kertanegara though known as a famous king, he also has many enemies at home. Panji Wijayakrama ballad, for example, mentions the rebellion Kelana Bayangkara. Negarakertagama noted Cayaraja rebellion. There are allegations that the Jawi Temple area used as a base by supporting Kertanegara. The allegations arise from the story of the history of that time Dyah Wijaya, son Kertanegara, fled after the king's coup Kertanegera subordinates, Jayakatwang of bracelets (Kediri), he was hiding in the area, before eventually fled to Madura.
