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.

  • We had good experience of trekking and being in calm temple for inner peace. View from hill top was great.

  • This temple overlooks the town of Pushkar. Fabulous place to visit at sunset. Has a stairway as well as a rope way,both of which are maintained well

  • A well maintained temple atop a hill which is accesible by a ropeway ride. Be sure to carry any food items inside bags else the monkeys sitting in temple premises will snatch them. The view from temple is awesome with entire pushkar valley being visible.
