The inhabitants are followers of Yarsan religion. A prominent spiritual leader of the religion, Ali Alipour (D. 1991) lived most of his life in Sheykh Hoseynloo. He was, perhaps, the only Iranian who spent time in a Germany concentration camp as a prisoner of war. The family of Azerbaijan's famous Ashik, Changiz Mehdipour are originally from Sheykh Hoseynloo.
