You’re in the area; why not? As religious sites go, small and simple. Interesting nearby cemetery as well. Ladies, bring a headscarf to enter.

Not much to see, a basic cemetery (still in use), plus Bin Ali's Toms - more interesting to read up on him.

Just at the entrance of Mirbat, before the horses statues, a whitewashed tomb of Mohammed Bin Ali is located. He was a respected religious leader who died in 556H (1161 AD). There is a big graveyard around the tomb.

It is an interesting tomb to see but definitely not a MUST see. Except for the tomb there is not much more to see around the tomb ... Mohammed Bin Ali was revered as an important leader and head of ruling families centuries ago

This tomb is very well kept and the guide really gave a great explanation of its history. Please be respectful when you are there, two German tourists had to be spoken to as they were being very disruptive.

Bin Ali Tomb is a tomb in a graveyard. The tombs standout because of their architecture and colour. Not a must see. If one is passing by then a stop of 15 minutes is enough.
