What attracted me to visit this place is the Spring of Job. Try the water, don't drink too much, just try a little. The place isn't big and they have some exhibits.

Ayub is arabic for IOB which is romanised in English to Job. While i cannot say if Job really visited here, it is a source of a spring and a holy place. There are also many posters explaining irrigation in the region but you have...More

The place where Job struck the ground with his staff and a sweat water well sprung forth to save his people from death by thirst. The well still provides sweat water even to-day. A piece of history, not that architecturally outstanding.

According to some, this is not a true mausoleum, but a qadamdjoy (site visited by a holy person). The oldest part of this multi-domed building was probably built in the 12th century.

I suppose if you are into Islamic History this is an interesting visit as part of the tour around the historic sites of Bukhara.

Located a few minutes away from the Ismael Samani Mausoleum, this structure was one of the more distinctive buildings I saw while in the country but not necessarily for the usual reasons. Legend has it that the prophet Job (yes, that Job) visited the surrounding...More
