Shrine of Shekh Shems • مزار شيخ شيمس • مزار شيخ شيمس

Shekh Shems' principal associated phenomena is the sun, which has high importance in the Ezidi religion and makes him and his shrine one of the most important at Lalish — perhaps only second to the grand temple itself.

Inside the shrine are some votive lamps and the usual, draped sarcophagus. Unusually, to the left is a smaller chamber called 'مزار سخي الجن' which translates to the Shrine of the Jinn.
