The Ambedkar Memorial at Alipur Road is built at the place where the dalit icon had breathed his last on December 6, 1956.

Mr Modi will inaugurate Dr Ambedkar National Memorial at Alipur Road on Friday on the eve of Babasaheb Ambedkar's birth anniversary.

Modi had laid the foundation stone for the memorial on March 21, 2016. Since this building was to be constructed as a Memorial of Baba Saheb, who was the brain behind the Constitution of India, hence, the building has been given the shape of a book. A, a musical fountain and a facade lighting are the other attractions of the memorial. "Many governments came to power after Independence, but what should have been done much before has happened now, after decades", Modi said.

In April 2017, Modi and Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull had travelled by metro to reach Akshardham station.
