Statue of the Goddess Mamaki from Candi Jago, one of a set of five figures dating to 13th-14th Century AD, British Museum.[1]

Jago temple (Indonesian: Candi Jago) is a 13th-century Hindu temple from the Singhasari kingdom in East Java, Indonesia, located about 22 km from Malang. The Nagarakretagama written in 14th century mentioned this temple as Jajaghu, as one of the temples visited by King Hayam Wuruk during his royal tour across East Java.

The Singhasari King Vishnuvardhana was deified as Shiva, in the form of Bodisattva Avalokitesvara, here after his death in 1268. The temple's bas-reliefs depict scenes from the Kunjarakarna, Parthayajna, Arjunavivaha, and Krishnayana.[2]:188

The name of Adityawarman appears in 1343 on an image of the Bodhisattva Manjusri.[2]:232
