One of the many claimed sites of the Prophet Job's resting place. It was monsoon season when were taken up by our guide so we missed out on the mountain views but the story is interesting. A huge footprint said to belong to job is situated outside. A pleasant wee place and worth the drive up.

This is the tomb of Prophet Ayoub. The place is well maintained simple but clean and beautiful. The tomb is in a small room but the vibes in the room are really powerful and positive, you feel a kind of relaxation internally. There is also a display of the foot print and is huge. Its worth a visit.

Nestled in the misty mountains of Salalah is Nabi Ayoub's Tomb. It is a great spiritual journey especially if you hear the story of the Prophet from the guides there. The mountains around the tomb were covered in clouds and it was amazing sitting on the benches absorbing the flora and fauna of the area. The drive up is very... More

Surrounded by mountains and with a great view, this place amazed me for the peace and the tranquillity you feel as soon as you walk through the fence. There is a path in a small garden very well maintained and you walk with the only company of the birds' song. The tomb is hosted in a small building and everything... More

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

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
