Honestly. It's a huge drive just to get to a room. And I'm Muslim so it's not like I don't appreciate there lugging aspect, it's just not a huge site. The drive up is nice and it's always good to have the nice view and vantage point but this is not a must see by any stretch of the imagination.

One of the more famous spots in Salalah. Signage in not proper. The way to the tomb is very good nice view from top. Huge footprint of the Prophet Ayoub/Job is preserved. The mosque next to the grave has two qibla - one old towards Jerusalem and new (almost 1500 years old) towards Kaaba in Mecca. Sad to see that... More

The first holy place in Oman, in which I got was the Prophet Ayoub's Tomb in Jabal Itin. Quranic prophet Ayoub is similar to the biblical Job. According to the Koran, Ayoub - the Islamic prophet (nabi), sent to the people of Israel. History of Prophet Ayoub mentioned in the Qur'an as a warning to the disbelievers among the examples...

A drive to this place is far better as compared to the actual tourist attraction. I had read the story of Nabi Ayoub online and thats the only reason I went to see this place while i was working here for a few months. I would recommend that when you are in salalah, focus more on seeing the natural beauty... More

I never imagined to visit a place like this really is something extremely special. You will enjoy even on the way because of the view and camels on the road..it was fantastic.

Enjoyed it for the bit of history it represents . A must see if you are in salalah. Woman don't forget to wear something to cover heads and shoes must be removed . It is also free to visit although donations are accepted.

This it the one thing I wanted to see. It is a bit hard to find. The signs are obscure and change . Sometimes it is Job's Tomb. Sometimes it is Ayoob. Sometimes it is referred to as a tomb of a prophet. It is out on the Itin road. There was no one there when we got there. Please... More

The best feeling you will ever have if you visit when no one is there. The place on the top of mountain the spirit of prophet grave. If you visit during khareef than the mounting will be in full green.
