The etymological significance of the term "Dharwad" is a resting place. However the district's nomenclature is shrouded in conjectures and surmises. With a 900-year-old history, once a kingdom of the Chalukyas is the focal pint of North Karnataka's academic, economic and industrial development.
Occupying an expanse of 13738 sq. km and lying to the east of the Western Ghats, the twin cities of Hubli-Dharwad are strategically located 420 km north and 550 km south of the urban metropolis of Bangalore and Mumbai, respectively.

Having recorded a population of 40,00,000, the inhabitants of Dharwad practice agriculture and also are engaged in industry and commerce. The district is famous for its mouth-watering milk based sweetmeats.

The stately religious sanctum, churches and mosque that dominate Dharwad's skyline magnify the district's natural glory. The noteworthy shrines include:

  • Someshwara Temple
  • Murugha Math
  • Shankara Matha
  • Dattatreya Temple
  • The Vittal Mandir
  • Vanavasi Rama Mandira
  • Temple of Milaralinga
  • Ulavi Basappana temple
  • Durgadevi Temple
  • Laxmi-Narayana Temple
  • Tapovan
  • Renuka Devi-Temple
  • Roman Catholic Church St Joseph
