Nice and clean city with nothing worthwhile to see

Hubli does not qualify as a tourist's dream since there is absolutely nothing to see. Ankle lake was a major disappointment. Since we were not interested in temples, we couldn't get any other places to visit. The city is clean, slow paced with friendly population with good places to eat out at reasonable prices.

Hubli Overview

History of 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. The setting up of the Railway Workshop here in the late 1880s consolidated Hubli's position as an industrial area.
