Khinalughs - History and Cultural Relations

The Khinalughs are descendants of one of the tribes of ancient Caucasian Albania, which, in the early Christian era, flourished in what is now northern Azerbaijan and southern Daghestan. It is believed that the population of Caucasian Albania spoke languages of the Northeast Caucasian Family, among them the precursors of the Udi, Lezgin, Khinalugh, Budukh, and Kryz languages. Earlier, Khinalugh was part of the Shemakha Khanate, of which Azerbaijanis formed the majority population. After incorporation in the Russian Empire in 1828, Khinalugh found itself in the Kuba Uezd (district) of Baku Province (Bakinskaia Guberniia).
