    Description: Bukti-bukti mengenai gunung dianggap sakral dan suci telah didapatkan sejak Masa Prasejarah. Salah Satu gunung yang masih dipercaya sebagai tempat sakral adalah Gunung Lawu. Berdasarkan tinggalan arkeologis Gunung Lawu ini nampaknya mempunyai peranan cukup penting pada masa lalu, bahkan berlanjut hingga sekarang. Studi ini akan menelusuri jejak-jejak pemujaan terhadap parwatarajadewa yang bersemayam di Gunung Lawu. Untuk memecahkan permasahan tersebut digunakan metode pengumpulan data meliputi kajian pustaka, observasi, dan dokumentasi. Setelah itu, data dibedah mengunakan analisis kualitatif dibantu dengan teori Religi. Berdasarkan hasil penelitian ini menunjukkan bahwa Gunung Lawu mempunyai nama kuna (Hindu-Budhha) yaitu katong. Walaupun namanya berubah namun makna yang dikandung tetap memiliki persamaan. Komunitas yang beraktivitas di Gunung Lawu saat itu adalah kaum rsi dan pertapa yang tampaknya memuliakan seorang parwatarajadewa (dewa penguasa gunung). Hal ini berdasar atas banyaknya temuan tinggalan arkeologi di kawasan Gunung Lawu dan didukung pula dengan prasasti yang pernah ditemukan di Candi Sukuh. Nama dewa tersebut menurut Serat Centhini adalah Hyang Girinatha. Evidence of the mountain as considered sacred and sanctified have been obtained since the Prehistoric Period. One mountain that is still believed to be a sacred place is Mount Lawu. Based on archaeological remains, Mount Lawu seems to have played a significant role in the past, even persisting up till now. Mount Lawu is used as a place to live and religious activity from the past. This study traces the worship of Parwatarajadeway residing on Mount Lawu. In order to solve the problem, it used data collection methods including literature review, observation, and documentation. The analysis used qualitative assisted by Religious theory. The results of this study indicate that Mount Lawu has an ancient name that is katong. Although the name had changed but its meaning still have a resemblance. Community’ activities that move on Mount Lawu around the 15th to 16th century are the rsi and the ascetic who seem to glorify the Parwatarajadewa (the god of the mountain ruler). This is based on many findings of archaeological remains in the area of Mount Lawu and also supported with inscriptions ever found in Sukuh Temple. The name of the god according to Serat Centhini is Hyang Girinatha.
