Candi Gunung Gangsir


Candi ini terletak di Dukuh Kebun Candi, desa Gunung Gangsir, Kecamatan Beji, Pasuruan. Penduduk sekitar percaya bahwa keberadaan Candi Gunung Gangsir pada masa lampau dilingkupi oleh gunung. Lalu ada seseorang yang ingin ‘menggangsir’ atau menggali gunung tersebut untuk mengambil benda-benda berharga di bawah candi. Maka setelah itu, candi tersebut terkenal dengan nama Candi Gunung Gangsir.

Berdiri di atas lahan seluas 62 x 24 meter dan luas bangunan sepanjang 20 M dan lebar 17 M, Candi Gunung Gangsir berbentuk segiempat dan bertingkat semakin mengecil. Dari literatur yang terdapat di lokasi candi, candi Gunung Gangsir berfungsi sebagai tugu peringatan atas keberhasilan panen di masa lampau, dimana awal abad 10 warga setempat baru mengenal pola bercocok tanam.
