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... More

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... More

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... More

nabi ayubi prophet jobs tomb lays in a wonderful setting on the mountains, if you visit the jebel al akhdar or jebel ash shams you cannot avoid visiting this holy place. the room is small and the tomb facing mekka al mukarrama is draped in green. there will always be people praying especially of Indian origin

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 .

Even the tour operator remarked that we would not be at the tomb long because there is nothing much to see. The attraction is that you can say: "been there, done that". Then there is the imprint of his foot in concrete outside of the tomb! How does that work??
