This tomb has been erected in the fond memory of Nabi Ayoub who is considered one of the great messengers of God. The atmosphere is quite serene, spiritually surcharged and amazingly peaceful. At the entrance, we get the imprint of his one foot which is wonderfully fascinating as its size is unusually big. It is a reflection of the size... More

This ziiyara is beautifully maintained with hedges grown along the side walk up to the area where the building, housing the tomb and also the footprint. Its not very crowded and one does feel a kind of heightened spirituality and awe knowing one is walking and looking back at religious history, respected by the three major monotheistic faiths. Further down... More

It's a nice place. Good breeze, quit and tranquil. The tomb itself - not quite sure if it's the prophets tomb. But hey ho I ain't a archeologist

I went to Job's tomb with friends. The drive there was more interesting than the actual tomb, which is a small structure housing a 'grave site'. It's really just a hole in the ground covered with a green cloth. It had significant religious value to my friends, and they were well pleased with the visit. It might be worth it,... More

Ayoub or Job is a biblical character, and in Quran as well. One of the places that you must visit as this is part of their history

It is believed he was travelling in the area and died and was therefore buried up in the hills. The site is isolated, well maintained with well tended gardens surrounding it. Men must wear trousers and women must cover their heads. Outside is a small area surrounding Job's footprint. To my mind, not terriby convincing. Inside the tomb, the surprise... More

This is alleged to be the burial site of the prophet Job, but whether it is or not is a moot point as there is also a site in Turkey and another in Lebanon that make the same claim to biblical fame! This version is not far from Salalah, situated on a hillside with good views of the surrounding landscape.... More

We loved the scenic route as we drove almost 45 minutes to get to the tomb, but once we got there we were disappointed. There Job is said to be buried. However, our tour guide said that nobody really knows for sure where he is buried. The view from the tomb is lovely. And we saw camels everywhere, even crossing... More

The sign says Job's tomb but not much to see. The green covering on something must be important, our guide was vague. The "foot print" was totally indecipherable. The most interesting part was the genealogy chart. Again, the toilets were locked and you are way up in the mountains.

As soon as I arrived at Salalah airport at the start of my long day trip from Muscat I armed myself with a good map and brochure provided by the friendly, helpful tourist information man by the baggage carousel and found a taxi driver to take me to Nabi Ayoub's tomb. I probably paid him a bit too much but... More
