A city in the Indian state of Karnataka is called Hubli; its actual name is Hubballi. The twin cities of Hubli and Dharwad are the largest city in North Karnataka and the second-largest city in the state by area and population. The taluk headquarters of Hubli City and Hubli Rural is located at Hubli, which is in the Dharwad district of Karnataka. Despite housing the HDMC office, Dharwad serves as the district’s administrative center.

Additionally, it has the most state government offices of any other location. Hubli-Dharwad was chosen for solar city and green city master plans in 2016. Hubli-Dharwad city was included in the government of India’s smart city project in 2017, a flagship program for the entire development of infrastructure in the twin towns.


The old Hubli, also known as Rayara Hubli, Eleya Purvada Halli, or Purballi, is home to a Bhavani Shankara temple and a Jain basati. Rayara Hubli flourished as a commercial hub under the Vijayanagara Rayas and became well-known for its commerce in cotton, saltpeter, and iron. The British established a factory here while the Adilshahis were in power. Shivaji pillaged the plant in 1673. Rayara Hubli was taken over by the Mughals, who also gave it to the Nawab of Savanur, who expanded it and named it Majidpura. The Durgadabail (fort maidan) portion of Rayara Hubli was later encircled by the new Hubli constructed by trader Basappa Shettar.

The renowned Moorusavira Matha in Hubli is said to have been founded by a Sharana during the reign of Basaveshwara. In 1755–1756, the Marathas took Hubli from the Nawab of Savanur. Hyder Ali took control of Hubli in the years that followed, but the Marathas managed to retake it in 1790. At this time, the Peshwas’ Phadke was in charge of the old town’s administration, and the Sangli Patwardhan was in the order of the new city. In 1817, the British seized Old Hubli from the Peshwas. The Sangli Patwardhan gave the British the new town and 47 adjacent villages in 1820 in exchange for a subsidy. Later in 1880, the British began the Railway workshop, and Hubli started to be recognized as an industrial hub in this region of India.

From Chalukyan times comes the magnificent Chandramauleshwara temple in Unkal. Tipu Sultan visited the Sufi shrine known as Sayed Fathesha Wali.

Tropical Hubli-Dharwad has a dry and wet climate. From late February to early June, there are hot, dry summers. The monsoon season, which has mild temperatures and a lot of precipitation, comes after them. From late October to early February, temperatures are mild, and there is hardly any rain. 640 meters above sea level is Hubli. 838 mm of precipitation falls annually on average.

The other three sides are known for their agricultural products, such as cotton, groundnuts, and oilseeds, as well as manganese ore and granite, whereas Malnad is widely known for its woods and industries based on the forestry sector.
