Since ancient times, we have been familiar with stories about strange creatures that appear out of nowhere, mysterious creatures coming out of giant crafts, flames, spheres, etc… These mythological “ships” were known in ancient India as the Vimana, mythological flying palaces or chariots described in Hindu texts and Sanskrit epics. According to the interpretation of these sacred texts, besides having the ability to move within the Earth’s atmosphere, Vimanas could also travel into space.
According to the ancient writings, Vimanas had different shapes and sizes, with two or more engines, these vehicles were sophisticated flying machines equipped with deadly weapons, although they were used for transport, their main business” was war. Some of these vimanas are descried as having a more oval-shaped form, while others resembled cigars in the sky, but there are also some descriptions which interpret the Vimanas as being giant floating palaces or cities.
According to a UFO sighting that took place in 2011, some claim that a giant Vimana was seen over Nigeria. According to hundreds of residents of the small border town of Dulali in Darazo, Nigeria, a large “flying city” came down from heaven.
According to one of the witnesses, Saidu Meshai Dulali who worked in the local tea shop, he saw the light in the sky after the morning prayer at the local mosque while preparing to begin daily work. Saidu and hundreds of other residents, including the imam of the local mosque, Mallam Shehu Liman, saw the bright light in the sky that was moving towards the village. As it came closer, you could see buildings and towers.
“The giant floating city” appeared out of nowhere, the entire city was surrounded by a thin cloud, it flew very close to the ground, through these “clouds”witness claimed to have seen beautiful large buildings, towers and the sound of machines originating from the city.
A 10-year-old boy also witnessed the floating city. According to local reports, 10 year-old Ibrahim could not believe what he was seeing. When reporters from the Nigerian national newspaper asked local residents about their opinion what they had seen, they said that it was the work of God, because of their religious beliefs. The Imam of the village, Mallam Shehu Liman, confirmed the sighting, though he attributed it to “Allah” and the “Djinn”, a reference to the spirits in the Islamic and Arab folklore. “We believe that perhaps God used those sightings for us to open our eyes and see how the Djinn live in their own world,” said Liman.
Exactly two weeks after the floating city appeared in our village, the flying object came again, and remained floating in the sky wandering over the town for nearly an hour before disappearing again.
Some residents believe that this “floating city” was in fact a giant flying saucer that belongs to an extraterrestrial race. From a cultural perspective, some residents have made connections to the biblical passage “Revelation 21:2”
“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”
This UFO sighting would have probably been just another story if it wasn’t for the hundreds of people who actually saw a floating city coming down from heaven. We believe it is a sign that something big this happen in that small town,” said Yau Kaugama, a politician from the local government.
But the highlight of this amazing story is that many local residents have no electricity, no mobile phones or the Internet, therefore, are not “manipulated” by the outside world.
