About Savitri Temple, Pushkar
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.

Savitri Temple, Pushkar Reviews
One of the more touristic temples in Pushkar, and rightly so, as it's set up on a hill and gives way to the most beautiful panoramic view of the city. The walk is a number of 800-1000 steps that do get a little steep at the end, but should only take about 40 minutes to climb. There is the alternative option of taking the rope way straight up and down. It is said to go around sunrise to capture the best views of the sun rising above the holy city. I went during sunset and it was still just as pretty. Towards the top you will find a huge amount of monkeys, most of which are fine, but be cautious around them - especially if you have food on you.
Beautiful place, view of pushkar is amazing from here. Temple is very good. I preferred ropeway vs. stairs, as 800 stairs are there.
Great famous temple. Now it easy to reach due to ropeway. There are stairs also who don't want to go by ropeway.
