Dharwad

Dharwad , Karnataka

Dharwad is a city which is located in Maharasthra and is the twin city of Hubli in the Dharwad district. One of the very old cities , it was a great city of srt and culture in the Hoysala dynasty and holds much importance in the past as well as the present. Dharwad is famous for its contributions to Indian culture, most notably to classical music and literature, and prestigious educational institutions, such as the Karnataka University. One word to describe Dharwad is pleasant. This is one city where you will feel at peace. There is no breakneck pace to this city and it lets you live your life the way you would want it. Thus it is today considered as one of the best cities for the pensioners. The other wonderful thing about Dharwad is that it is a city located at the edge of the Western Ghats. Not only is it a very hilly town with cool climate throughout the year, it also has a thick green cover making it very environment friendly and a home for various flora and fauna which is specific only to the Ghats in India. It is thus, not surprisingly, very famous for the water birds that flock this place. It is one of the places which contributed the most to Indian music including Sawai Gandharva, Mallikarjun Mansur, Bhimsen Joshi, Basavaraj Rajaguru, Kumar Gandharva and Gangubai Hangal. The names themselves suggest the importance of this city in forming the legacy of Hindustani classical music as it is today. This is a primarily agricultural land with the start of the famous black soil on which cotton grows. Dharwad is calm, relaxing, happy and everything that you do not generally expect a city to be
