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

the location is very nice but it's kind of deserted place. The masjid is closed. We were greeted by the camels wandering outside the location.

Abt 20 minutes from Salalah by car, sorrounded by a nice garden you may find this tomb of the prophet in a small building.Coming back to the city you might have a nice view on Salalah.

This is a worthwhile excursion to visit one of Job's several tombs that are scattered around the middle-east. (There are sites in Turkey, Lebanon and Israel with similar claims). The drive up the mountain is beautiful, allow time to stop for views and to see the frankincense trees close up. The site itself was simple and pleasant.

Given the reputed significance of this site, the place itself is very modest. But its simplicity is part of its appeal. The tomb itself is not much to look at but even so you get a sense of the religious importance ascribed to the site. Dont expect much, but nevertheless the drive is worthwhile and if you are familiar with... More
