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.

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

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

Located around 18 km from Salalah atop a mountain, the trip is worth taking. There is a steep downward trail with stone steps leading to a cave below the tomb location where a natural spring sprouts out from a crevice and history states that Prophet Ayoub (Job) used to perform ablution. The authorities have constructed a pool where devotees take... More

If you are new to Salalah, take the assistance of a person who knows the place. Best time to go there is in the morning. The view is splendid. As this place has history attached to it, visit can be made at your own discretion.
