I have been an avid traveler throughout my life , call it a quest for new experiences or due to the professional pursuits which take me around. But it’s not all the cities I relish travelling to , but the ones which have a soul about them – which are able to instill a feeling of belonging in me. The twin cities of Hubli and Dharwad often have such an effect on me , and many other travelers I have spoken to about this, alike.
The city of Hubli today is blessed to have an enriched historical heritage, thanks to the varied cultural exposures it has had in terms of it’s rulers. Being the centre of politics for the south Indian rulers, the city was later annexed by Marathas, and then the Mughals. The British won the city in the early 19th century, and this proved enriching for the city in terms of it’s development.
