Uzunlar is a village in the Borchali uezd of the former Tiflis governorate, later in the former Allahverdi (Tumanyan) district, and currently in the Lori province. The provincial centre is located 47 km to the northeast of the town of Boyuk Garakilsa (Vanadzor), and at a height of 1125 m above sea level.

The village was previously inhabited by Azerbaijanis, but after the settlement of Armenians in the region, they were forced to flee the village.

The toponym was coined from the corresponding tribal name.

By the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of Armenian SSR dated 30 September 1967, the village was renamed “Odzun”. According to the law “On the administrative-territorial division of Armenia” dated 7 November 1995, it was integrated into the administrative territory of the Lori province.
