This church dedicated to Saint Odisho used to serve the Christians in Nasiriya, who all left. However, under the name of Sheikh Babak the same church serves the Yezidis as a temple.

With no priest in Nasiriya anymore, the keys are kept by a Yezidi family across the street. Inside the church, the Christians and Yezidis alike tie knots, light candles, and keep oil for lamps.
