Today, January 30, marks the anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination. Gandhi devoted his life to fighting against caste discrimination and untouchability. Two temples on Mandir Marg, Birla Mandir, and Valmiki Mandir, were key to his struggle against these societal issues.

Gandhi inaugurated Birla Mandir on March 12, 1939, under the condition that people of all castes would be permitted to enter. These efforts were part of his advocacy for equal rights for so-called lower caste Hindus. He firmly believed that there should not be any restrictions on the basis of caste in any place of worship or learning, as he expressed in his journal, “Young India,” in April, 1925.

On the opposite side of Mandir Marg, Gandhi resided for 214 days from April 1, 1946, to June 10, 1947, with the Valmiki community. During this time, he became a dedicated teacher, offering classes and downplaying his other responsibilities so he could teach the Valmiki children who had never been to school.

Gandhi’s commitment to education also extended to residents from other schools who attended his classes, which were open to all. According to accounts from those days, he used to chide students who came to his class without having taken a bath.

Nowadays, visiting the room inside Valmiki temple where Gandhi stayed reveals photographs of him with various important historical figures, as well as a painting of him interacting with passionate children. The room is preserved with all of his personal belongings, making it a sacred place for the caretakers like Krishan Vidyarthi.

Gandhi’s classes ceased when he concluded his stay at the Valmiki temple and relocated to Birla House. Despite the end of the classes, the impact of Gandhi’s teachings continues to resonate with the community. His dedication to the eradication of caste discrimination, teaching the underprivileged, and his commitment to freedom continues to inspire many people to this day.
