“Great Views”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

By tradition this is the tomb of Job. Outside the site is beautiful. A small building encloses the tomb itself which is set into floor and draped with green silk cloth. You must leave shoes outside and women and men must dress conservatively - no short, headscarves for women. Is it worth a special trip. No sure. There are restrooms in adjacent buildings - but they are "traditional" style - holes in floor.

“Sacred place in the mountains”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Interesting drive through the mountains to reach this sacred tomb. Great views from the top.
Only 2 people who were praying there when we arrived. Very peaceful and quiet.

“Quiet place on the mountains”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

This is considered a sacred place by Muslims and Christians. It is right on top of a mountain in serene surroundings. There are always a few people praying. Apart from the tomb, there is hardly anything else, but the view from top is a sight to see. Sadly, there are no rest rooms in the vicinity considering the amount of tourists.

Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

The holy place must be seen. Pay respects. Nearby is a spring in serene valley which is a miracle of the prophet Nabi Ayoub. Nice climb down to see this place and enjoy the scenic beauty .
