Job’s Tomb

Islamic Tomb in Western Salalah Plain

In religious terms, this tomb is probably the most important site in Dhofar. Regardless of your religious convictions, the tomb, situated on an isolated hilltop overlooking Salalah, is a must-see for the beautiful drive, especially during the khareef, and for the view over the Salalah Plain on a clear day. The tomb is around 30km northwest of Salalah. Follow the signs along Ittin Rd and turn left at the signpost for An Nabi Ayyub after 22km.

At the site, a juice stand sells fresh coconut and sugar juice for 500 baisa. A small restaurant below the tomb has wonderful views – and good egg roll-ups.
