Another point of interest while in salalah the drive to the location it self is amazing during khareef season. A little too overcrowded during holidays. The atmosphere is very calm and soothing.

This is a holy place. The government needs to take care more of this place in terms of maintenance and architecture. The room is small.

It is a good drive towards the mountain- jabals green during july-august and a bit until sept. Drive straight out of Salalah to the north following the tourist signs. The tomb area is well kept green and clean. You may take a stroll among the hills around. Foggy and misty during Khareef, with cattle n camel laid narrow mountain road.... More

Job, a prophet known to all three major religions (known as Nabi Ayoub in Arabic) for the travails he underwent to prove his belief and trust in God, is supposedly buried in a tomb high on a mountainside in southern Oman, not far from the city of Salalah. The tomb itself is about 30-45 minutes from Salalah. The drive to... More

This is the resting place of Nabi Ayoub which is located in a small building. There is nothing much to see here except for religious purposes. The drive to the mountain where the building is located is itself worth the effort. The best time to visit this mountain would be around July during Khareef season where the mountains would be...

We visited this site during a day tour from Salalah. The tomb is in a pleasant rural hillside location and surrounded by flowering bushes. The tomb is in a small building. Some work was taking place, but access was still possible. Adjacent to the tomb is a large footprint in the (what appeared to be concrete!) surface surrounded by a... More

Prophet Ayoub A.S. Tomb is situated at a hill side and a beautiful trail goes up into the mountains. The site is very crowded during peak season and it may take time to reach up and come back, so please allocate ample time to visit. A must visit site.

This tomb is a famous pilgrimage site for locals and guest workers. I am not Muslim but it didn't matter to the other visitors. I tend to stay outside, happy enough to ply around the grounds and enjoy the peace and cool breezes compared with the mugginess of sea-level Salalah. You drive out toward Ittin about half an hour, and... More
