    This is the tomb of the biblical Prophet Job, located in the mountains in the hinterland of Salalah. The place is very impressive. We went there in the evening, after sunset. It was just us. You can enter freely through a narrow street pedestrianised in a garden. Before you pass a small mosque, then you come to a small "Cottage" in which there is the tomb of job. Although this Prophet belongs to all the major religions to respect customs in force in Islamic countries (like this one) you should remove your shoes before entering. It's a small environment, with some plaques hanging on the walls, in the middle of which there is the grave of the Prophet. Outside there is a well on the bottom has a footprint left by the same Job. A sacred and ancient place first of all. Small and cozy. Well worth a visit.

Where to stay in Salalah

The main hotels of Salalah sit close to the sea, enjoying extensive views of the coast, private beaches, pools, and fine-dining restaurants. Some particularly luxurious resorts can be found along the coastal roads, with sculpted grounds and onsite malls. Inland, where the real city sits, you'll find some similarly luxurious hotels. However, there's a much greater choice of standard options, with a pool perhaps, a restaurant for sure, and comfortable rooms. Rental apartments along 23rd July Street provide perhaps the best budget-friendly options in town.
