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.

Not worth a visit unless one has a religious reason for it. We went out of curiosity but did not find it touristic by any means.

the tomb it self is not special but what I enjoyed the most is the way you have to pass to reach the tomb, as its located on the top of Slalah mountains over looking the city, so you will pass some really green sights and if you are lucky the weather will be foggy which will add a special... More

The drive to the tomb is beautiful and it is well worth a visit. The surrounding gardens and peaceful and bird-filled - a must-see in Salalah.

The drive up to the tomb was great and the landscape lush. The tomb itself and its immediate surroundings need much more maintenance and upkeeping.
