Tawafa is one of the main holidays for the Yezidi community.

As you know, the Yezidis of Georgia honor their ancient traditions. On June 12, 2022 in Tbilisi, after a two-year pause due to Covid restrictions, the Spiritual The Council of Yezidis of Georgia held festive events in honor of the holiday "Tawafa Ezid".

According to the Yezidi tradition, each temple has its own holiday dedicated to the saint in whose honor the temple was erected. In Iraq, tawafs fall in April, after the end of the Sarsal holiday and last for a month. In every Yezidi village, the tawaf of the village temple is celebrated. In Shangal, the Sharfadin Temple festival is celebrated in the middle of summer. And in Tbilisi, in agreement with the Supreme Spiritual Assembly, Tawaf is celebrated in June.
