Review of Nabi Ayoub's Tomb

Nabi Ayoub's Tomb
Ranked #7 of 40 things to do in Salalah

Reviewed 22 May 2014

Some think that the tomb of Job is in Lebanon but regardless it was an interesting drive up there. We were shown along a path, past the women's mosque, toilet block, mens mosque and gardens (a bit scruffy with rubbish strewn about). The Tomb itself was inside a concrete building with a rug over it. Outside is a small well-like hole with a huge footprint in the concrete inside. He must have been a giant! The views were nice from the tomb. We didn't stay long and went to take photos of the camel calves hanging around near the carpark.

very interesting to visit.. depending on your religious beliefs would depend on how much time you might need to visit.. for us it was relatively short but extremely interesting to see.
its a little way to drive but the journey was fun for us as well.

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.

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.

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.
