Wadi-us-Salaam Cemetery – Tombstone Tuesdays August 18, 2020

I mentioned the 7 largest cemeteries on a previous Tombstone Tuesdays – The 7 Largest Cemeteries in the World — BillionGraves Blog – Tombstone Tuesdays June 16, 2020, so I decided to see what I could find on each of them. This took a bit longer than I expected it would take. The debate over how many are buried in the cemetery is 5 million vs. 10 million burials, depends on the source used.

Moving to #1:

#1 Largest Cemetery in the World:
Wadi-us-Salaam
Najaf, Iraq
