|Building/site biography:||The mausoleum, located in the central-eastern part of Mount Sinjar, is effective against eyes disease and its feast is celebrated in the middle of the summer. The mausoleum was destroyed by ISIS in 2014: the mausoleum was a pile of stones in 2017. One could detect that this pile was originally a Yazidi building by seeing the old spire of the shrine. As it can be seen in the picture, a Yazidi grave still had plastic flowers attached to the pole.|
