The Valley of Peace in Iraq

Situated in Iraq, Wadi Al Salam (Valley of Peace) stretches over an area of six square kilometers, making it the largest Muslim cemetery and probably the largest in the world.

Cradling over 5 million graves including that of Shiite's first Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib, Shiites from the rest of the world desire to be buried here because of the graveyard's vicinity to Iraqi's holiest Shiite station --- Imam Ali Shrine.

WOW! This place is soooo massive!
Imagine a zombie outbreak.........now thats a thriller!
