When you see Wadi Al-Salaam, also known as the “Valley of Peace,” on Google Maps, you will first think you are looking at a huge, bustling and sprawling city, full of neighborhoods and office buildings, in Iraq. However, when you zoom in you’ll realize it’s definitely not a city.

Yes, after zooming in, you realize that these office buildings are actually tombs and that you aren’t in a city, but in one of the largest cemetery in the world, which covers more than 1,485 acres and is located in the city of Najaf in Iraq.

Yes, this graveyard is really really huge. The record-breaking graveyard contains millions of bodies, making it one of the largest on earth. To cross the cemetery with a car will take you about 15 minutes (not full speed because of bumps in the road).

People have been buried in the cemetery for over 1,400 years, resulting in literally millions of bodies there. It’s estimated that over 500,000 additional bodies are buried here each year.

People don’t visit the cemetery at night due to its size and people believe to hear movements and voices.
