World's Largest cemetery. Graves of Prophet Hood & Saleh A.S present here. Considered part of Jannah. Every one desires to be burried here. Very near to shrine of Mola Ali A.S. One portion of cemetery is reserved for royal family of Iraq. Cemetery has pre-Islamic history.
Spiritual place it's has enormous familiarity due to Prophet Hood and Prophet Saleh shrines. This is also part of Janat ul Firdous. First time Prophet Ibrahim purchase it and then Mola Ali purchase this land.
