This tomb is very modest as was Job. The site is not spectacular but moving when you think of a figure part of Judaism Christianity and Islam

If Islamic history interests you. This is a must see. The tomb of Nabi Ayoub has a sense of peace and tranquillity surrounding it. One needs to remove their shoes before entering. Be modestly dressed and respectful of the place. I

Does not impress me.
Nov 2019
Job's tomb did not impress me much, but I was surprised by the large number of people who visited this place far from civilization. I think that before visiting this place it would be worth getting acquainted with the life of Job [if someone does not know who Job was].

Don’t waste your time
Nov 2019
Unless specifically important to you on religious grounds this is a complete waste of space. It’s basically a pair of grave stones in a tatty concrete building with some very downmarket decor. The only redeeming feature is that it’s free to get in. There are nice views on the drive up and from the hill of the tomb but you need a clear day for these (we had a lot of haze sadly). There are so many better ways to spend you time around Salalah - Salalah beach, Wadi Darbat, Khor Rori, Mughsayl, Sarfait Road or even a trip to Rub al Khali.

Too Altered
Oct 2019
The tomb has really been mostly ruined by the building built around it of it plus the various decorations put on top of it. It doesn't look like any kind of ancient tomb, it just looks like something that someone built over a random location. The "footprint" is more of a small divot that has been put in concrete that is now put in a well of sorts about four feet deep to protect it I guess. The scenery around is beautiful just like the rest of the mountain areas, but the tomb just seems too artificial.

If interested in History.

A bit faded now, but very interesting if you like your History and religion.
Nothing touristy or scenic here.

Job’s Tomb A Must for Religious Tourists
Oct 2019 • Couples
Job or Ayub is significant to Christians, Muslims and Jews and perhaps to historians. His story is one of patience in adversity. The tomb of Nabi Ayub is humble and inauspicious. This is not a criticism. Perhaps it is appropriate and gives us an opportunity to reflect on our own blessings rather than on richly ornate architecture. While you are in the area, make sure that you find directions to Nabi Ayub’s Spring, where it is said God cured him in the waters.

On your way to this place, you get to hear your soul breathing, as if you are just alone, the surrounding is very calm, you only listen to birds singing.
