Chashma Ayub Mausoleum information
The peculiar Chashma Ayub mausoleum was built from the 12th to 16th centuries over a spring. The name means ‘Spring of Job’; legend has it the spring appeared after Job struck his staff on the ground here. Inside is a small water museum where you can drink from the spring. Next door is a glistening glass-walled memorial to Imam Ismail al-Bukhari.
