Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The grace of Mother Goddess Gayatri, the authority of the four Vedas namely, Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharvana is a must for everyone in general and Hindus in particular. There are some temples dedicated to her. One such temple is at Pushkar, Ajmer district of Rajasthan. She has other names like Vedamatha and many. Her temple is popularly known as Pap Mochani Mandir in Pushkar.

Lord Brahma 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 seated on the highest hill in Pushkar, whereas goddess Gayatri, is seated at the eastern side 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.

On the request of Gayathri Lord Bramha granted a boon to her to be head of Vedas with five divine characters. So she has five faces of different colours as indication of her divine powers and as a presiding deity over the four Vedas, namely the sacred Sanskrit scripts of Hindus. Gayatri blessed Pushkar to be the king of pilgrimages.

The idol of Gayathri is very beautiful and attractive. You will be pleased to see her smiling, bewitching, attractive faces. I felt as if Mother goddess Gayathri is sitting like a living Goddess.

The Pushkar town bus stand gets number of buses from Ajmer, which is about 11 km from here. The local rail way station brings trains from 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.

Pap Mochini Temple is dedicated to Ekadashi Mata & believed that she will respite you from all sins. Meaning of Pap Mochani means who relieves you from sins. The temple is known for it's marvelous architecture also. On one side of temple there is a lake and other side big ground of mela -fair. A niice visit.

Spectacular is not the word. This temple is located on a hill top which is about 20 minutes walk from the base of the hill, ie. going slow. I am known to walk fast so this might take a little longer for those who walk at a medium pace. The hill itself is a short walk from Choti Basti (Pushkar) and is located in a village settlement thus making it safe for lone travellers like me to explore and look around. The trek up the hill is not very strenuous. For the first 500 meters or so there is a cemented path way after which s a more natural trek that has well placed rocks and stones that acts like a stairway. I went up at around 4.30 pm. Once up the hill, it is a breathtaking view with the entire town looking like a spec. Since this hill is quite close to the main Pushkar town you can see the temples, the lake and other places of significance with a bird's eye view. On the day I went there, people were preparing for the Kite festival and it was a beauty. Mr. Ramkishan who was the acting priest (since the priest could not perform the puja due to a death in his family) was very warm and welcoming. After offering prayer to the deity Gayathri Matha, I sat outside the main shrine on a platform and gazed out at the spectacular view beneath while making small talks with Mr. Ramkishnan. There were other fellow travellers enjoying the peace and serenity and there we formed a bond of silence. Watching the sunset from there with the red flags fluttering in the strong wind and feeling the warmth and chill at the same time was beyond my imagination. It was worth the wait and the walk up the hill. After watching the magnificent sunset while having the cup of tea offered by Mr. Ramksihan, we trekked back in silence while the light was still fading from the sky. Overall an unforgettable experience.

Took 20 minutes to walk up the rocky hill. As some points are not well maintained, a bit scary I felt.

I enjoyed the nice view from the top, but the view seems nicer from Savitri temple using a ropeway.

So, if you have some specific reason to climb up here, that's fine. Otherwise, I recommend Savitri instead.

Great for Sun rise or sunset. Easy walk to the top with really nice views. Good to bring a small offering to the priest at the bottom of the hill. And some small offering at the temple at the top. I always bring some incense and flowers or fruit.

Beautiful view of pushkar, especially when the sun sets over it. Apparently a good spot for sunrise too. If you fancy a slightly longer uphill hike go to savitri temple for sunset (you can see it on other side of lake opposite pap mochani)

Fairly easy climb up, the last few hundred feet are worn uneven steps, don’t let it put you off, I managed with a knee brace on... fantastic views all round, actually clean & tidy, was expecting mess after reading previous reviews... there was a rubbish bin there...

Not as far to the top as it looks and well worth the effort. Although we did this at Christmas time we still had to take a breather as it was 25 degrees plus.
