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.

The fact that this is a holy site of historical note is pretty much all this place has going for it. In a small compound with a couple of Mosques, the tomb location itself is not particularly well looked after and there is very little information available in English. The drive up there and the views are good. We were... More

History is highly important part of life and noone should miss out on real events which are longlasting. You will find this tomb mentioned in every know book about Oman and this region.

For those who are not religious, this place has very little or nothing to offer. The foot print looks more being Jetty's one. The visit was included in a tour, otherwise, it wouldn't catch my attention.
