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.
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!
Great divine place to be here. The place was close between 12-2 pm so we waited just outside. The view from here is just awesome. You can see whole pushkar from here as this place is on hill top. There are two ways to reach there. Either by rope way or stairs. Ropeway will take 10 mins to get you there and it will cost you around 110. Great divine place.
A nice place with the aerial view of the entire city of Pushkar. It is wheelchair accessible and this is one of the good things about this temple.
