Ambedkar Memorial Park History

Founded in 1995, the Ambedkar Memorial Park was formerly known as the Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Udyan. However, with further renovations in 2002, the Udyan came to be known as the Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Memorial.

The memorial was eventually revamped in 2007 and was finally a full-fledged public space only in 2008. The Ambedkar Park was soon renamed as Bhimrao Ambedkar Memorial in 2012. 

Park Architecture

The red sandstone structure of the memorial houses many other significant pieces on its park premises. 

Ambedkar Stupa
Situated on a pedestal, this stupa houses a massive bronze structure of Dr BR Ambedkar sitting on a chair. The base of this revered image holds an engraving of the line "My struggle of life is my only message." 

Since it has an open-flower kind of architectural design, it houses four opposite facing doorways. The inner space of the Ambedkar stupa exhibits various portraits of Dr Ambedkar and his life.

Museum - Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Samajik Parivartan Sangrahalay
Spread across 2.5 acres, this museum is roofed with two dome-like structures. Each dome holds statues belonging to different personalities.

One of them sites statues of freedom fighters including Ambedkar, Jyotiba Phule and Shri Narayana Guru. Whereas, the other has marble idols of individuals such as Gautam Buddha, Sant Ravi Das, Sri Birsa Munda and Sant Kabir Das.

Pratibimb Sthal
This is a 107-acred expanse marking the entrance to the memorial. It hosts sixty and odd elephants parallel to each other. There is a huge central musical fountain towards the memorial's entrance. 

Gallery - Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Samajik Parivartan Gallery
The gallery is a vital preserve of various artefacts and documents crucial to Dr Ambedkar, his life and his importance in the freedom struggle.

There are also several bronze-embellished wall work and other statues as well. There is also a small souvenir shop selling books and other relics here. 

Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Memorial Drashya Sthal 
An encompassing viewpoint of the entire memorial park, this Drashya Sthal has been laid out on an 80 feet tall pyramidical structure. There is also constant water flowing from its pinnacle.
