Gayathri Mantra

The Gayathri Mantra is also known as Savithri and Saraswati. There is no greater mantra in the world than the Gayathri mantra. Gayathri is the first place in magical worship. This mantra is chanted for Gayathri in the morning, for Savithri at noon and for Saraswati in the evening Sandhya Vandana.

Maharishi Vishwamitra created the Gayatri Mantra. The Gayathri Mantra has been widely quoted in the Vedic and post-Vedic texts
