I came across the following chapter from the history that I like to share:-

Ambedkar died on December 6th of that year. In death he has become, perhaps, more powerful than in life, for he has become a saint in hallowed North Indian tradition. On January 13, 1957, a solemn procession was held in Agra. Ambedkar’s son, Yashwant Rao, and other leaders came bearing a silver urn containing the doctor’s (Dr. B R Ambedkar’s) ashes. The urn was installed in the new Buddhist temple (Bodh Vihar) at Chhaki Pat in Agra. This temple, established in Agra on March 18 1956, was manifestation of the readiness of some Agra Jatavs to follow Ambedkar in his conversion. At the Agra obsequies speeches were given against Hinduism and an estimated 3,000 were converted.

After this mass conversion, a revolutionary or conversion campaign (krantikari daur) was initiated, and on the next day twenty to twenty two Hindu temples were converted into Buddhist temples by Jatavs.
