Introduction / History
On the left-bank tributaries of the Turianchai River there is a village of Nidzh whose outskirts are smothered in fruit and walnut orchards. Nidzh and its suburbs are inhabited by the Udin (or Udi, Uti as they call themselves), the representatives of a small, but ancient people having its own language. Nidzh is surrounded by vast virgin leaf forests with many birds. Local honey, which is particularly tasty, is also famous. Scientist believe the Udin to be the descendants of the Caucasian Albanians.

The Uddin written language had not been established until the twentieth century. For their literary language, the Udin used the Azerbaijanian, Georgian, Armenian, and Russian languages. The language is the Lezgin group of the Caucasian (Dagestan) languages.

The main Udin occupations are farming, horticulture, and cattle production. Some Udin people work in industries. Vodka making and raising nuts and pigs are common industries.

What are their beliefs?
Udin believers follow Christian ideas, both Orthodox and Georgian.
