The world's largest cemetery is so expansive that a view from above will take your breath away.

An Iraqi student captured drone footage of Wadi al-Salam, where more than 5 million people have been buried over the past 1,400 years. The cemetery, which is located in the Iraqi holy city of Najaf, is where many of the world's Shia Muslims have been laid to rest.

Shia tradition says Wadi al-Salam, which means, "valley of peace," is a part of heaven.
