The history of Hubli is quite interesting. Hubli was once called as ‘Rayara Hubli’, 'Purballi' or 'Eleya Purvada Halli'. Under the Rayas of Vijaynagara, Hubli grew as an important commercial centre, popular for cotton, saltpetre and iron trades. The British opened a factory under the Adilshahis which was looted by Shivaji, in 1673. After the Mughals conquered Rayara Hubli, the governance was passed over to the Nawab of Savanur, who built an extension called Majidpura. Later, Basappa Shettar built New Hubli around the Durgadabail, which was part of Rayara Hubli. The famous Moorusavira Matha is believed to have been established by a Sharana of Basaveshwara's period. During 1755-17, the Marathas conquered Hubli. For a brief period, the city was occupied by Hyder Ali but it was recaptured by the Marathas, in 1790. During this time, the old town was administered by Phadke, under the Peshwas whereas the new town was under Sangli Patwardhan. In 1817, Hubli was captured by the British who started a railway workshop here, in 1880. After independence, the area became a part of the state of Karnataka.
