Lalish is the spiritual center for all Yezidis - in cosmology, history; and, contemporary ritual, worship, and community. It is located in a compact verdant valley in the Yezidi heartland of what is now northern (Kurdistan) Iraq. During the major feasts, such as the 7-day autumnal "Feast of the Assembly", the valley overflows with joyful Yezidis of all ages.
