Savitri temple is located beautifully on the southwest hill of Pushkar. The legend behind this historic temple is that when Brahma performed the yajna at Pushkar, his wife Savitri could not reach the yajna in time. So Brahma performed the pooja with the help of a local girl, Gayatri – who then became the second wife of Brahma. This enraged Savitri and she sulked off to the hilltop and was pacified only with the agreement that she would always be worshiped first. This tradition still continues, first the aarti is performed at Savitri temple and then at Gayatri temple. Idols of both Savitri and Gayatri are now installed at the Savitri temple. Since this temple is located on a hill it can be bit difficult to reach up there but then you will be welcomed with beautiful views of the city and the surrounding hills.

Quite a nice place plus the view from top of the Ratnagiri Hill(on which Savitri Temple is situated) is awesome. very calm place one can visit there solo too. In recent 2-3 years this temple is developed and the natural essence has been gone.. But the hill area behind the temple is pretty good.
Nice place and u will do short trekking though stairs and also awesome views for sun set and ropeway route.
Best place on the hill Natural.. Areal view of pushkar from hill @ night is unforgettable
Very nice place in pushkar, the Ariel view of pushkar is very awesome, beware for monkey, use sharing auto
Such a nice place, we walked up 3 times in 4 days! We had entertaining views of donkeys walking down the stairs, old ladies racing up the stairs with enviable vigour, monkeys playing at the top, and of course the amazing sunset views. Although the temple closes at 8, it’s lit up all night should you wish to walk up as we did!
