Ilédì is the temple of Ògbóni or shrine of Ẹdan. The Ògbóni people are devotees of Ẹdan. The Imọlẹ̀/Òrìṣà that is called Ẹdan is one of the messengers (Irúnmọlẹ̀ and Igbaamọlẹ̀ or Òrìṣà) sent by Olódùmarè. Those who are interested in following Òrìṣà Ẹdan have to get initiated into her cult and become Ògbóni. At Èjìòdí Home of Tradition, we have the Ògbóni temple called “Ilédì Tifálàṣẹ” (Tifálàṣẹ Temple of Ògbóni/Tifálàṣẹ Shrine of Ẹdan).
Our temple is different because, every tenets of the temple is traditional to the fullest. This is because, we act and practice according to the dictates of Ifá, the scripture of this religion. It is a fact that most of the Ògbóni temples in Yorùbáland today have been adulterated or mixed up with elements of Christianity and Islam. Therefore, we do not see them as real shrine of Ẹdan or authentic temple of Ògbóni. Instead, they are syncretic temples or syncretic shrines. But in our home, we do not allow syncretism. Our aim at our temple/shrine is to practice and present the real tradition as laid down from the time immemorial before the intrusion of foreign religions into our midst. Therefore, there is no room for syncretism here.
The Ilédì is presided over by Olúwo Fáyẹmí Fátúndé Fákáyọ̀dé, Ìyáàbíyè Ìyábọ̀ Àṣàbí Àtàndá and Apèènà Bàbátúndé Àlàbí.
