Located high up on the mountains and we experienced a lot of fog on the way up there so our driver couldn’t go beyond 40km/hour. However the tomb is located on a scenic hill. The tomb itself is very long about (10ft). Apparently a very...More

The tomb is long, it does prove many stories of people being tall and tombs increasing in size with time. A very serene and calming experience. The place is always crowded. Please cover yourself fully as visiting any tomb/religious place,

The tomb is on the hill and the way towards the tomb is just amazing, bit dangerous as you have to be a very good driver but its amazing.

The journey into the mountains was spectacular. However the tomb was very disappointing. Lots of litter around (unusual for Oman). Would not recommend anyone to visit.

Compared with other really impressive tombs eg in Vietnam this one is more or less simple built. Would I have traveled there if I would have known it in advance? Surely not.
