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.

About 25km outside Salalah up on the jebels. There is a fairly scenic drive up there and it is well signposted. Do not be confused with Prophet Ayoub's Restaurant. He never walked there. The mausoleum is to the left on top of the hill. There is a mosque and some washrooms and the tomb. The building the tomb is in... More

I have visited Salalah in 2013. it was a refreshing trip. Though Salalah is a small city that's why its peaceful and surrounded with beautiful ocean on on side and mountains which turn green from August to September on the other side. My trip for Prophet Ayub's tomb started around 1 in afternoon, Because of the peak season for tourists... More

Tombs of ancient saints are always in doubt. That Job has other potential tombs in Syira and Turkey does nothing to diminish the importance of this holy place for the people around here. Particularly interesting are the prayer spaces outside which were originally oriented toward Jerusalem, but now have prayer carpets facing toward Mecca. Inside, there are plenty of signs... More
