Ayub Cave

Ayyub Cave

Kerman province with its large area is one of the provinces that has a high potential in various tourist attractions. Old and beautiful villages, vast deserts and deep valleys are part of the attractions of this vast province. But one of the important attractions of Kerman province is a very large and large cave which is located in Dahaj region and on the border of Kerman and Yazd provinces.

Ayub is a volcanic cave that has expanded due to weather-induced erosion, so that it currently has the largest cave entrance in Iran. The access road to Ayub Cave requires about half an hour of walking on a relatively steep path. Although the large size of this cave and its entrance can be clearly seen from a relatively long distance, but its true greatness can be better understood next to the cave. The entrance of the cave is so wide that it is hard to imagine.

Ayub is not a deep cave and due to the dimensions of its opening, there is enough light in the whole space of the cave and you can visit the whole cave without the need for a flashlight.

The space inside the cave is without the usual decorations in sedimentary caves and there is no news of abstracts and drops. But in some parts of the roof of the cave can be seen the phenomenon of honeycomb caused by erosion.

At the end of the cave, there is a relatively large footprint on the wall, which according to the locals belongs to Job, the Prophet, and that is why the name Ayub (Persian name of Job) was chosen for the cave.
