Savitr (stem), Savitā (nominative singular) is a solar deity and one of the Adityas in the Vedic religion.


Savitr in Vedic Sanskrit means impeller, rouser, vivifier.


Savitr is described in the Vedas as having golden arms, hands, hair, etc. He is sometimes identified with, and at other times distinguished from, the chief Sun deity Surya. A number of beautiful Vedic hymns are invoked in his praise. He is the god of the Sun at Sunrise and Sunset, and was most often invoked in the latter role in Vedic hymns.
