Popular beliefs in Kermanshah province, especially among the Kurds living in this province, are special, untouched and related to mythological thoughts.

Among the many marriage rituals in the mentioned clans, courtship rituals, holding a wedding on a odd day, the presence of a woman named Pākahsūr, the bride's red dress and bread and salt with her, the magic of the knot, the presence of male elements in the symbolic affairs of the wedding, dance and music . According to the research, matchmaking in the mentioned clans is mostly in the form of the girl's family leading the way, which is reminiscent of marriage in matrilineal periods. The woman who is referred to as Pākahsūr has the key role of the goddess Ašī. Holding weddings on odd days of week is related to sacredness of one, three and seven in mythology. The red color of the wedding dress has mythological meaning and shows life, and bread and salt with her is related to the concept of Farrah. The magic of the knot, which is more commonly referred to as tying the groom, is a kind of imitative magic, and the strong role of male elements in the wedding is in connection with fire and the symbolic concept of the stove. The Kurdish music and dance (Halaparkī) is basically a repetition of the rituals of honoring the land and related to the agricultural era.
