Isolated mountain top site

Can be reached by paved road and generally part of any tour to the west of Salalah but fortunately we were there at a quiet time and found it fascinating.

Not worth a visit unless one has a religious reason for it. We went out of curiosity but did not find it touristic by any means.

the tomb it self is not special but what I enjoyed the most is the way you have to pass to reach the tomb, as its located on the top of Slalah mountains over looking the city, so you will pass some really green sights and if you are lucky the weather will be foggy which will add a special... More

The drive to the tomb is beautiful and it is well worth a visit. The surrounding gardens and peaceful and bird-filled - a must-see in Salalah.

The drive up to the tomb was great and the landscape lush. The tomb itself and its immediate surroundings need much more maintenance and upkeeping.

The tomb is worth seeing because the are various other tombs in the same area that seem to date back a long time. The place will take about 15 minutes of your time.

One of the places where the tomb of Prophet Job (PBUH) is thought to be located is in the Qara Mountains of Dhfar in southern Salalah . The Route is pretty scenic and green during the monsoon season.

Informative in terms of biblical and Islamic history. Ladies need to cover up and no shorts allowed for men and women. Anyone can visit regardless of their religion.
