This is a worthwhile excursion to visit one of Job's several tombs that are scattered around the middle-east. (There are sites in Turkey, Lebanon and Israel with similar claims). The drive up the mountain is beautiful, allow time to stop for views and to see the frankincense trees close up. The site itself was simple and pleasant.

Given the reputed significance of this site, the place itself is very modest. But its simplicity is part of its appeal. The tomb itself is not much to look at but even so you get a sense of the religious importance ascribed to the site. Dont expect much, but nevertheless the drive is worthwhile and if you are familiar with... More

Located around 18 km from Salalah atop a mountain, the trip is worth taking. There is a steep downward trail with stone steps leading to a cave below the tomb location where a natural spring sprouts out from a crevice and history states that Prophet Ayoub (Job) used to perform ablution. The authorities have constructed a pool where devotees take... More

If you are new to Salalah, take the assistance of a person who knows the place. Best time to go there is in the morning. The view is splendid. As this place has history attached to it, visit can be made at your own discretion.

Nice drive, we went at night and it was still open for public. Its on a hill top and the roads are very narrow. you might find camels on the roads so you should be careful while you drive.

The place has historic/religious significance but isn't well maintained and has very limited facilities. Don't go here if you aren't interested in history or religion.

If you expect some sort of tourist attraction then you may be disappointed but this is a religious site and should be considered as such and seen for its historical significance rather than its location and immediate surroundings. Normally there will be some visitors there offering prayers at the site and respect and consideration should be shown. Limited facilities.

Whilst the burial site may be old you will not see it as its covered in cloth. All the buildings are from the last 50 years and very poorly maintained with no character. Take your own refreshments and toilet paper. On the drive you will see some great scenery and the view down to Salalah is quite special. There is... More

This tomb is rather far from Salalah and not worth the effort. If you are not really into this kind of history, don't make the effort of going there.
