Yazidi Child In The Temple City Of Lalesh, Kurdistan, Iraq
The Yazidi are a Kurdish religious group, who represent an ancient religion linked to Zoroastrianism and Sufism.They live primarily in the Nineveh Province of northern Iraq, Kurdistan. Their religion is seen as a highly syncretic complex of local Kurdish beliefs that contains Zoroastrian elements and Islamic, and even some indian stuff...The Yazidi believe in God as creator of the world, which he placed under the care of seven holy beings or angels, the chief of whom is Melek Taus, the Peacock Angel. When you enter the village (which is in fact a huge temple) , you must leave your shoes. People are incredibly welcoming.
