Savitri Temple

Savitri Temple, situated on the top of the Ratnagiri Hill, is dedicated to Lord Brahma's first wife Savitri. Devotees have to climb a long flight of steps to reach the temple. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Brahma had performed a Yagna along with Gayatri, a local milkmaid, in the absence of his wife Savitri. When Savitri heard about this, she flew into a rage and cursed Brahma that he would not be worshipped anywhere except in Pushkar. A beautiful statue of goddess Savitri is present inside the temple.
