On 2nd March 1930, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar launch a stiff satyagraha in Nashik to gain entry in the temple.
Dr. Ambedkar said: 
"I didn’t launch the temple entry movement because I wanted the Depressed Classes to become worshipers of idols which they were prevented from worshiping or because I believed temple entry would make them equal members in and an integral part of the Society."
