Haldwani is a town located in the district of Nainital within Kumaon region of Uttarakhand state in India. Haldwani, which is one of the biggest commercial centers of the state, is considered to be the gateway to Kumaon Himalayas.

During ancient times, Haldwani was known as Halduvani. This name was drawn from 'Haldu', a tree abundantly found in this area. However, the name was changed to Haldwani during the British rule in 1834.

The British had taken over the beautiful region of Kumaon after defeating the ruling Gorkhas in the year 1815. A British commissioner by name Gardener was posted in Kumaon. Later, George William Trail took over as commissioner. It was Trail in 1834, who changed the name from Halduvani to Haldwani.
