About Hubli

"Hubli or Hubballi, as it is sometimes called, is located in the Indian state of Karnataka. The town is the headquarter of the South Western Railway Zone and is also one of the key producers of cotton and peanuts in the country. The term Hubballi literally translates to the ‘flowering creeper’ and refers to a kind of plant specific to the area.Hubli was under Maratha control for most of the 18th century, but after the British landed in the country, they took over Hubli in 1817.

The part of Hubli which was taken over by the British is now the old Hubli which has the Jaina Basti and the Bhavanishankar Temple.Old Hubli is also known as the Rayara Hubli and it is a major trading centre of Hubli for cotton, iron and saltpetre. Under the British rule, a factory was also opened here which led to the industrialisation of the area.Hubli is largely a trading centre of Bangalore with rapid industrial development taking place because of the concerted efforts of the government.A recent developmental effort by the government in the region includes the setting up of the Hubli Software IT Park. It has been set up to promote the IT/ITes industry in the region. Despite the industrialisation, Hubli still maintains some of its old world charm and has some places of interest."

Places To Be Visited In Hubli

Banashankari Temple

    The Banashankari Temple was built in the 13th century by the Chalukyas. Once again the temple is a marvelous example of the Chalukya period art and stone sculpting prowess. It is a stone carved masterpiece and is dedicated to the Hindu deity Shiva. The temple pillars are marvelously carved out of granite and are currently undergoing restoration.

Satoddi Falls

    Satoddi Falls is one of the most famous waterfalls in the state of Karnataka. Located about 75 kilometers from Hubli, Satoddi Falls is known for its peaceful environment and beautiful surroundings. It is a blend of different streams flowing near Kallaramarane Ghat. The water falls from an altitude of 50 feet into a huge pond. The water eventually flows to the Kodasalli Dam into the mystical river of Kali. The surrounding greenery and forests add to the beauty of Satoddi Falls. The best time to visit these falls is between November and April. It is best to avoid visiting the falls during the monsoon season, as the roads can get very uneven.

Nrupatunga Hill

    Nestled in the Unakal Hill, the Nrupatunga Hill is a small hillock and picnic spot in Hubli. The hillock serves as an excellent view point and a great escape point from the bustle of the city area.
