the drive to it can be interesting. But the location itself is not too attractive. It is just a tomb. If you do not have a good guide to explain much more about the history of islam etc.... it is not worth it.

The ride to the tomb is up a mountain and offers views of Salalah city. The drive itself is nice. The tomb is of historical significance. We went there during off season and there was no crowds. Permitted to take photographs but should not wear shoes inside.

Nice view of Salalah from above and nice garden. Nothing exceptional if not interested in religious sites.

I did not enjoy it too much, but I am not a Muslim. But according to a list of important persons in Islam which was on the walll, this tomb is for the no. 13 most important person in Islam. But the drive up to the tomb which is up on a hill is Nice. The only other tourists there... More

This is the tomb of the prophet Ayoub (Job). It is located on top of the mountain, so the drive there was interesting and fun. The tomb itself is a basic cloth in a tiny room.

The tomb is located in a garden, on top of a hill.The building is very old, but it is hard to believe that -as the tomb custodian suggests- it has survived for more than 3000 years. There is also an altar next to the tomb that according to the custodian, Nabi Ayoub (Prophet Job) prayed there for 18 years. The... More

The small mausoleum is not much to see, and it is highly unlikely that this is the actual Job's tomb. The drive to the place is interesting, but the view is better from the road side parking lots along the way than from the actual top.

The place is so far up in a mountain and the drive can be a bit scary, a lot of people say it is not the Prophet because there are 2 other countries that claim they have his grave as well!! Worth a visit

Can be reached by paved road and generally part of any tour to the west of Salalah but fortunately we were there at a quiet time and found it fascinating.
