The Jabal Thawr (literally meaning the "mount of the bull") stands some 760 meters tall, which is about 120 meters higher than the Jabal Nour. The name of this mount is also recorded in sources as the Athal or Thawr Athal.
The Cave of Thawr () is located on the north-western ridge of the mount. It is a small cave, measuring some 3.1 feet at its widest, and total length is about 18 spans and width is 11 spans. There are two entrance in to the cave, one from the east and the other from the west.
