Savitri Temple Legend

According to Hindu Mythology, the temple name ‘Savitri’ itself narrates an important story behind it. A yajna was performed by Lord Brahma where his wife Devi Savitri couldn’t reach on time. Hence, in order to perform the pooja timely, Lord Brahma completed the ritual with the help of a local girl, Gayatri - who then became the second wife of Brahma. All this made Devi Savitri very upset and angry.

Later, in order to please her, the shrine was dedicated to Devi Savitri. Also, the arti (worship ceremony) is performed first in Savitri Temple and then in Gayatri Temple. The deities of both the goddesses are kept in the Savitri shrine.
