Pushkar is surrounded by many hills one of the hills on the southwest houses the Savitri Temple. It is strenuous and hard climb uphill but the views are wonderful and worthwhile. 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 become the second wife of Brahma. This enraged Savitri and she sulked off to the hilltop. Then the agreement was made that Savitri 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.
