Savitri Temple - Review
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
Amazing temple at top of the hill. Newly introduced ropeway system is providing a great help for pilgrims to reach at the top. It is expensive though. Each person cost is Rs 120/- up & down. Children above 4 years are charged full. Reducing one star for it's expensive rates. Parking is easily accessible. Photography isn't allowed at the temple, but you can enjoy taking great shots down the hill. Entire holy city is visible from this hill top.
One of the most attractive thing in this place is cable car safe and so cheap . Good experience
Temple on hilltop with beautiful views all around. Has good ropeway to reach the top. Must visit place in pushkar.
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!
The Savitri temple in Pushkar is located on the Ratnagiri hill which is a popular pilgrimage site for the Hindus. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Savitri. It is a very strenuous work to climb on the hilltop but it is believed that the harder you work the more ‘Tapas’ are gained. In this temple you will find the idols of both the wives of Lord Brahma named Savitri and Gayatri. But as per tradition Goddess Savitri is always worshipped first and then prayers to Goddess Gayatri are offered. The visitors can either trek to the temple gates or take a ride in the cable cars which take passengers to the temple. The ropeway ride is really full of fun from where you can have an awesome view of the Pushkar city.
