The grace of Mother Goddess Saraswathi, the goddess of learning is a must for everyone. There are some temples dedicated to her. One such temple is at Pushkar, Ajmer district of Rajasthan. Here she is called as Savithri (some spell it as Savitri). She has many other names too like Vani, Vagdevi, Kalai, Kalaivani, and Vidhya and so on.

The temple of Goddess Savithri is situated on the top of Ratnagiri Hill, behind the Brahma temple, on its western side in Pushkar. She is the consort of Lord Brahma. There is an idol of Goddess Savithri in this temple. Normally the Hindu gods are bigamists. So also Lord Brahma who has two consorts namely Savithri and Gayatri. There is a separate shrine for goddess Gayatri at Pushkar but at opposite end of the lake. Goddess Savithri, being annoyed and enraged, cursed Brahma and seated on the highest hill in Pushkar. Whereas goddess Gayatri, being afraid of people coming in search of her is seated at the low level hill on the other end, that is at the eastern side of the Pushkar lake. This is the position Lord Bramha and His two (beloved) consorts as we see in Pushkar.

We have to do bit of exercise to reach the temple on the hill top as it is necessary to climb the steps. Her temple is built of marble. It is better to mount the hill in the morning so that we can have beautiful scenery of the Pushkar Lake. Goddess Gayatri temple (locally called as Pap Mochani Mandir) is easy to get in to by 30 minute walk on the steps. It is behind Marwar bus stand at Pushkar town.

Coming to Savithri temple Her idol is very very pleasing. I felt as if Mother goddess Saraswathi is sitting alive like a living Goddess. The temple is also beautiful and attractive. People of all walks of life must visit this shrine to get the grace of the Mother Goddess of learning.

The Pushkar is well connected with Ajmer on road, which is about 11 km from here. There are number of buses to reach Pushkar town. There is a rail way station here that brings trains from the nearest large railway station at Ajmer. Ajmer is a railway junction connected to almost all cities in India. The nearest airport is in Jaipur at distance of 146 km from there one has to take a train, bus or private vehicle to come to Pushkar.

The temple is situated on top of the Ratnagiri hill which is the highest point in Pushkar. Here Maa Saraswati is with her mother. The mythology goes that Lord Brahma for performing a Yagnya in Pushkar has taken Maa Gayatri as his wife as Maa Saraswati got delayed in her shringar. So, Maa Saraswati cursed Lord Brahma will not have any other temple of worship other than Pushkar and went to her mother's place on top of this hill and stayed with her. It's a very small temple, seems renovated recently. During renovation, the antiquity of the temple is not protected I felt.

It's quite a climb uphill - it has taken around 1 hour to climb up with breaks to admire the view of Pushkar lake and the city on one side and enchanting dessert on the other side. There are well organised steps half way through and the last mile is quite uphill and unorganised. Once we reached the top I felt it's worth the climb as the magnificent view enfolds. We went there in the evening planning to view the dessert sunset from the hill and it's so beautiful.

I had an opportunity to go up to this temple which is on the top of hill in Puskar, one has to climb few hundred steps to reach the temple, it is quite an effort to climb the temple from the top of the hill this temple of goddess Savitri is nice place to visit very few devotees visit this temple as it takes at least half an hour to reach the temple and that too after taking breaks every few minutes or else you can not climb up, the areal view from the top from the temple is so beautiful that one can not imagine you can see the entire Pushkar lake and the entire city of Pushkar.

We were aware of the temple because of the cable car attraction. The cost of the two way ticket is Rs 97 + taxes for adults. One can also trek up through stairs. While in the cable car, it stops for 30 seconds mid way so that you can enjoy the view. The temple is still under construction. When you reach the temple, a group of monkey family will welcome you. They look harmless unless they see any eatable stuff in your hand. The last cable car trip is at 7.30PM. The best time to visit the temple is in the evening.

Savitri Temple is located on the hill behind Brahma Temple. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Savitri, first wife of Lord Brahma. We have to climb series of steps for atleast one hour to get blessing of Goddess Savitri on top. From here one gets an ariel view of surrounding nature. A nice visit.

Must visit when in Pushkar. A 5 minute cable car ride will get you there or you can take the stairs.
