Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If your guide takes you here, he's running out of things to do. The mausoleum is only interesting because of its age (Timur era, 14th century), the legend of Job and an remarkable, unusual conical dome (Kwarazm style). Inside there is a tiny museum and a water well ; previously you could drink from it, but they stopped that during my visit.

Chasmah is a nice stop for a shirt visit. It's beautiful building and beside it there is a sacred pool with protected equally sacred fish swimming. The water is supposed to be a miracle cure but I wouldn't advise drinking it!
Above the mausoleum is an ancient mud bricked Fort, almost gone, but some ruins remain that you can walk up to for great views. It was supposedly built by Alexander the Great.

From Bolo-Khauz Mosque we walked on a road Passing through the residential area and in next 10-15 minutes reached 'Chashma Ayub Mausoleum. In front of the mausoleum was the Monument of 'Imam Al-Bukhari', which certainly was an impressive building with a museum in the basement, entry 5000/- Soum per person. Adjacent to Chashma Ayub Mausoleum was huge 'whole-sale' grain & vegetable market which was crowded with the traders and the locals. Structure of Chashma Ayub Mausoleum and the interior was not really impressive. The care-taker girls informed us that due to the renovations there was no entry fee otherwise it could be 4000/- Soum per person . With a marginal interior decor, we found a container at the end of the hall, fixed with few water-taps. The two Muslim attendant-girls convinced us to drink "Water For Health" because it was pouring into the container from a natural spring, blessed by Hazrat Ayub. We both sipped the water and also filled our bottles for later use.

One km away from the famous fort of Bukhara is located CHASHMA AYUB, reportedly the place of visit and mausoleum of prophet Ayub(job) who struck his staff on the ground and the water spring with healing effects was its result. the structure is probably of Timurid and Khwarazm period, with dome of typical Bukhara style.the place is still thronged by vcisitors of all kind, and pays for entry and the water being drawn.

We visited this mausoleum by walking east from the Talipach gate on Sulaymon Murodov Street. It was a short walk and situated at the northern end of the park, to the right of the zoo. It was unfortunately closed for the day, but we were able to walk around the building and admire the arched brick walls on the property and the four domes on the roof. Of particular interest is the cone shaped double dome at the rear of the building which is a design of the Khwarazm Empire which ruled Bukhara in the early years of the 13th century. The structure is said to date from 1206, but was completed in 1379 during the rule of Amir Timur.

The plaque above the entrance stated 12th - 16th century construction. The mausoleum is in the middle of an ancient cemetery, and built over a holy spring. The spring is known as Job's spring, and named after the prophet Job. The water museum inside the building relates the history of water in Bukhara between the 10th-20th centuries. We were disappointed at not seeing the museum as we had visited a few sardobas in the city and wished to learn more about them and the many ponds and waterways. Before leaving ensure to take a "zoomed" photo of the stork sculpture at the top of the conical dome at the rear of the building. We thought this was a great addition to the mausoleum.

After visiting this site, the Samanid mausoleum is a short walk south and if you continue to the western end of the park, there is a large lake which offers boating, f&b shops and other entertainment.

This Chasma Ayub is somewhat cool depending on who you are or what you like or not. There is a well inside and you are allowed to drink the water. I did. It is very clean. There is a story behind this well and Ayub the Saint. There is also a tomb in here, not known who it is.

worth stopping by this mausoleum - not sure whose tomb is there, but the interest is also for the three domes' shape.

This mausoleum dedicated to water has an interesting history and is well worth a visit. It is not as grand as other structures in Bukhara, but still very beautiful. It is also a bit off the tourist track. When I visited this place women were gathering water from the well in the mausoleum, which was a great opportunity to chat with the locals.

We continued through the park to the next stop, the Chashmai Ayub Mausoleum, now a museum of Bukhara water supply. It's a rather nondescript building and entry costs around 30k som (£2) and the museum is quite interesting. It only takes about 10 minutes to read the panels, most are in English, and the scale of destruction of the Aral Sea due to cotton farming was particularly amazing.
