The very long tomb (30 m) of the father or Maria, mother of Jesus... Situated in a little "oasis" in the center of Salalah, near a little mosque. Interesting and very strange,

Absolute waste of time, you drive 30mins from Salalah only to see a cheap green cloth on the floor. The area is not in a good condition as well.

This is an interesting stop and it has an interesting story but unless you have someone along that knows about it or have a guide book you won’t know what you are looking at. It has no English explanation.

4W drive or SUV is not needed. Regular car would solve the purpose. Ofcourse, any given day, 4W is comfortable though.
