Chashma-Ayub Mausoleum is located near the Samani Mausoleum, in Bukhara, Uzbekistan.

Its name means Hz. Ayyub’s عليه اسلام well, due to the legend in which Hz. Ayyub عليه اسلام visited this place and made a well by striking the ground with his staff, following people’s request due to severe drought. People say that the water from this well is still pure and healing,

The current building was constructed during the reign of Timur and features a Khwarazm-style conical dome uncommon in Bukhara.

Chashma-Ayub Mausoleum is in the middle of a small, ancient cemetery.

The prophet Hz. Ayyub عليه اسلام apparently struck his staff many places from Oman to here, causing a spring to appear whose water cured him of boils and ulcers.

The mausoleum contains a small water management museum and a tap to enable pilgrims to drink from the spring.

Locals visit it to drink from and collect the water that is supposed to have healing power.

Inside the mausoleum are taps from where pilgrims can take the water for drinking for cures.

There is one tomb behind the exhibits as well so make sure to check it out as well.
