a name itself originated from flora origin. ODAL, a tree,
+suffix GOOR>GURI means roots, surrounding etc., i.e., a place
surrounding the Udal tree.
Some want to say that the name came to be known with a
place centered round a 'ODAL tree', while the others are in
opinion that the name of the place became Udalguri because there
was a hermitage of a sage named Uddalak Muni.
Udalguri was once one of the sub-division of Darrang district.
Today Udalguri is a newly created District under Bodoland
