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 - Write a Review
Really enjoyed pushkar and this was probably my favorite place there. I preferred it to the lake. The lake wasn't as good due to all the religious scammers with the flower ritual asking for donations. This temples is on a decent hill and the viewed are really good. The air is fresher and it's a nice change to do a little cardio. Not sure who uses the cable car, but there is one.
The Temple is situated at a height such that you have to climb 500 odd stairs to reach the temple. We started early morning to see the sunrise and reached the temple in 25 min. But due to the clouds sun was covered, but the view was amazing!! You could see the Pushkar lake and all the greenery around you.
It was great morning walk to hill. Sunrising was not that much beautiful but walk down through sand hill was attractive.
You can have an amazing view from here of entire pushkar. A must visit place here either by ropeway or stairs which are 500+ i guess.
Great views of Pushkar city and the surrounding Aravalli hills. Divine place to have darshan of savitri mata. It has a cable car ride too.
