Answer :

Temple entry movement was started by Ambedkar in 1927 because Brahmin priests were outraged when the Dalits used water from the temple tank. The Dalits were not allowed entry into the temples. It was like denying them one of the basic rights that is equal access to public place.


Through three temple entry movements between 1927 and 1935, he wanted to make everyone see the power of caste prejudices within society. By these temple entry movements, he wanted to regain self respect for the Dalits.
