Prime Minister Narendra Modi believes it is a blessing to the BJP that after its continuous efforts, it is being successful in developing pilgrimage sites related to Babasaheb as Panchatirth. Prime Minister Modi has also got the opportunity to visit several such sites. Be it a visit to Ambedkar's birthplace or to purchase the land of Indu Mill in Maharashtra to develop a memorial at Chaitanya Bhoomi; developing the Diksha Sthal in Nagpur according to international standards or constructing a memorial at 15 Janpath in Delhi at his Mahaparinirvan Sthal – the Government is sparing no efforts to develop these centres as Panchatirth.

Memorial in Mhow - On April 14, 2016, the Prime Minister paid tribute to Dr. Ambedkar at his birthplace Mhow. The Shivraj Government in Madhya Pradesh has given this monument a new life. The foundation stone for this memorial was laid by the then Chief Minister Sunder Lal Patwa.

Today, this monument has become a pilgrimage for people who respect Babasaheb. From here, the Prime Minister gave the clarion call for ‘Gram Uday Se Bharat Uday’. Referring to Babasaheb's thinking and his contribution to the poor, Prime Minister Modi says that there should be a sense of reverence for understanding the principle of Babasaheb.

Memorial at Diksha Sthal - Following the formation of BJP government in Maharashtra, Diksha Sthal has been accorded the status of A-class tourist destination. This long awaited demand was met with PM Modi’s initiative of marking 125th Jayanti of Babasaheb Ambedkar. Rapid development of the land is being done to make the site for monument world class.

Memorial at Chaitanya Bhoomi – The task of developing Babasaheb Ambedkar Memorial at Chaitanya Bhoomi in Mumbai is progressing. There were many obstacles in this especially the case of 12.5 acres of land was stuck for years from Indu Mill. The process of transferring the land was not complete. When Devendra Fadnavis became Chief Minister in Maharashtra, with the inspiration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he facilitated this process in collaboration with Union Textile Minister Smriti Irani. A few days ago, this work was done on March 25th. Maharashtra Government has taken initiative to purchase land of Indu Mill and make a memorial site here. In 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed Bhoomi Pujan for the site.

The Prime Minister said that the memorial site would not only be built by lime, stone and bricks, but through public participation. PM Modi urged to plant trees, each belonging to 40,000 villages of Maharashtra and one tree from all the states of the country.

Ambedkar International Center at Janpath - Ambedkar International Center is being built at Janpath Marg in New Delhi. The place would attract people from the point of view of tourism, while followers of Babasaheb Ambedkar can come here and connect with his ideals and principles.

Ambedkar Memorial at Alipur Road - Ambedkar's Mahaparinirvana took place in a Bungalow at 26, Alipur Road, Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation of a unique building here. Remembering the social, political and economic contributions of Babasaheb, PM Modi says that he will be injustice to limit Babasaheb to a particular class. He recalled former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and said that he had decided for the memorial to come up. The memorial will be inaugurated on 14 April 2018.

Apart from Panchatirth, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Ambedkar Memorial in London on November 14, 2015. Maharashtra Government led by Devendra Fadnavis bought the three-storey house, where Dr. Ambedkar used to stay. 800 crore rupees have been spent to convert the building into a museum. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stating that the people of this world would be drawn to this place to understand India's economic thinking.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi says that Babasaheb has taught us to work in national and societal interest and when done so, our direction will always be right. That is why he continues to be an inspiration even today.
