A site, hidden away in the dense rain forests of south-western Nigeria is believed to be the burial ground of the biblical Queen of Sheba. This burial site is itself located within a large area which is surrounded by the ancient Eredo earthwork and is believed to be the wealthy Queen Sheba’s Lost Kingdom.

The small, sleepy village of Oke-Eiri, located on the outskirts of Ijebu Ode, in Ogun State, hosts this burial site of the ancient Queen, and has been the destination of local pilgrims for centuries who come to pay homage to the sleeping legend.

The Christian Bible described the queen as a women of immense power, intellect and wisdom, who came to visit King Solomon when she heard of his outstanding wisdom. It was recorded that she came with “a very great caravan of camels, carrying spices, large quantities of gold and precious stones”. It was also stated that “never again where so many spices brought into Israel as those the Queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon”. In Islamic tradition, she is commonly referred to, as Bilkis, Bilqis, Balqis or Balquis by the Arabs, who believe that she came from the city of Sheba, also called Mareb, in Yemen. Historical and archeological studies revealed that there are many links between the Biblical queen and Bilikisu Sungbo of Ijebu land. The Queen of Sheba is said to be associated with ivory, eunuchs and gold. Ivory and gold are known to be very abundant in Nigeria at the time, while eunuchs were present in ancient West African palaces.

A team of British scientists working with Patrick Darling Archaeologist at Bournemouth University discovered the remains of an ancient kingdom deep in the Nigerian rainforest.

Each year, thousands of pilgrims come to honour what they believe is the grave of the queen of Sheba. This is a spot bare of vegetation in the Nigerian rainforest where tall trees have become entangled with canopy foliage, festooned with spider’s webs and falling leaves, creating a gloom that inhibits vegetation.
A team of British scientists may have rediscovered the centre of one of Africa’s greatest kingdoms – and the possible burial place of the legendary Queen of Sheba.

  1. Strange but let the team of researchers do more. Where was her kingdom before she was buried in Nigeria, I learnt that she’s from Ethopia, east Africa

  2. Another news to distract our attention from the evils going on in this country. Another British lies, even during colonisation they couldn’t discover it then, why now. Lies. The same way they said mungo park discovered river Niger, where our people have been fishing

    • Guy I also give it a doubt when I first heard it,but is very real and confirmed, she was been buried in one village called oke eiri in ijebu ode Ogun state. ….

  3. It is unfortunate that our history or anything Africa is nothing to some people. The above is true and proofed scientifically and biblically.

    • How is it proven scientifically? You people are so dumb and naive. In order for it to be proven scientifically, her bones would have had to Ben dug up by archaeologists? This is an ideological claim, it is not a fact. I can’t believe Nigerians are this dumb

  4. Sheba (arabic saba) is the ancient semitic civilization in Yeman, And the Queen ruled all the way till Egypt/ Ethopia. Now how on earth did they manage to connect this to Ogun state, absolutely , no idea…Nigerians like to believe anything said by Oyibos… and by add the phrase “CONFIRMED” just does not make it a fact.

    • Don’t think that way Shaban, our ancestors had been traveling through horses, even do you know some Sudanes drove out of their land through war are now in nigeria through act of walking. We are all contingent of Ethoipia, Egypy and Sudan, which are the world that extended to ancient Mesopotamia[Middle East], but then in these ancient time it was Yoruba language and culture that rule the world. The ancient Hebrew and ancient Arabs spoke Yoruba language.King Saba and prophet Mohamed before God and man spoke Yoruba language, and king Saba was an Ijebu Yoruba queen, fact to this my claimed is the noun ‘Jebu-site’ that appeared in Biblical text, Jebu were to the kush[kushita] family, of which Sabe belong to, and queen Sabe was burried among his Ijebu Yoruba family where they resettle after the lost of their original Mesopotamia homes, that includes Arabic -saudi, Istrael, Yemen, Egypt, Sudan and Ethoipia.

  5. How did she get to nigeria? and what scientific link are we talking about< You carried out genetic test or you met a written document . get out joo, you just want to draw attention. people go there to pray, was she a christian or a moslem? she went to see Solomon's temple does not make her a christian.

    • Prophet Sulaiman is a muslim acording to the Qur’an and so was his wife. because they are used to worshiping the sun in sheba doring her time but she later converted to muslim true sulaiman. But Allah knows best of her tomb. And we are Muslims and not muslem

  6. Pls all what is said is true and if you want to confirm it go to Ijebu ode the place is called bilikisu sungbo and in eredo EPE the dried river is called odo sungbo

    • She came from Abyssinia or modern day Ethiopia. Most people referred to Ethiopia as Abyssinia or vice versa. No one used Ethiopia to refer to Western Africa smh

  7. There was Ethiopia which represented the whole of Africa, there was nothing like Nigeria then. Or would u deny that some Nigerian words are not in the bible? Check your bible and you’ll see the word Abia. It’s not a coincidence.
    It could be true, but Nigerians don’t even believe that they have something of pride now, so they won’t believe even if it was true. And that’s sad. If not for pilgrimage, many Nigerians believed that Israel was in heaven not on earth.

    • Ethiopia did not represent the whole of Africa, stop lying and it certainly did not represent the West of Africa. You people are really desperate. Also, the Bible does not constitute as scientific proof. There are tons of biblical stories that are mythical.

  8. The queen of Sheba was never a black woman. Oh! I remember now. She was Igbo. Her name was Olamma. I hope you believe that!

    • You don’t know that ancient Igbo were of Yoruba kindress, that latter move out, that is why the meaning of the noun Igbo is within Yoruba language, Olamma can not have meaning in Igbo language ecept through Yoruba language, right spelling of Olamma, is Olamo, but with varint meaning, Ola mens riches,or ‘tommorow, ‘mma’ from ‘mo, meaning ‘kown’,but if is of ‘omo’ abbrevaition it would means ‘child’.

  9. This is not news or a new discovery. My father told me about the story in the 70s. The place is actually along Ijebu ode-ibadan road. The myth or story was while on exile, she died or was buried at that spot. People from all over the world come to that spot yearly to celebrate Queen Sheeba.

    • People from all over the world travelled to pay tribute to a burial cite that a British just apparently “discovered”? Interesting. I hate to break it to you but do you realize that our older ancestors tell a lot of stories, most of them which are made up as opposed to factual

  10. Interesting! Only made for calming the nerves after a hard day’s work.Still at work and will return to the story for more scrutiny and authentication.

  11. Dis is real &truth.I watched d story on one programme called ‘Aditu Eledumare’,whr I get 2knw dat any young female dat steps der wl neva born 4lyf.D place is an holy place and d archeologyist in der research believe dat her bones stil rest on.If Saudi (Mecca) and Israel (Jerusalem) discovered many bibical tins hw much other places.

  12. Its funny. Many Africans have access to outstanding technology and mind blowing information gadgets but still tend to think like their anscestors of 100 years ago. While I Am not saying they are wrong they are not following due process in proving themselves right. Its a great leap from Ijebu Ode to Jebu-sites. While the kwa-ibo group of languages has traces in other language groups even as far away as the middleeast as a result of ancient egyptian Influences I find it hard to believe that Yoruba was the language of any other culture north of Kwara.

As for bilikisun sungbo, I think we need more research.

  14. I don’t know why people disbelieve this story, but if were to be related to oyinbo. No one will doubt it. When are we going to appreciate good thing in our land?

    • Hmmmmm black people with black mind …..them no dey ever believe naaa n moreova if not for the help of google how dem wan knww say planet sef exist. If you like believe it or not, its your business…

    • Because Oyinbo people would not simply passionately claim something as theirs, they would have scientific proof to back it up. Where is the scientific proof to back this up? Africans can be so dumb, I swear. If it really is Sheba, then her bones should be dug up and her DNA should be tested to find out if it really is Sheba. This is what “Oyinbos” would have done like anyone with a rational claim would dom

  15. It is a true story and stop arguing what you don’t know, you people should be proud that you now have something to boast of, that is why white men are seen as the best people, if this throne is being discovered in the USA they would have find a solution to rebuild that throne of Sheba and the grave, for people to to travel from various places to come and see an ancient place like the throne of Sheba.

    • You are a real dummy. Where is the scientific proof that this is true? Anyone can make a claim, that is easy to do. And keep your inferior complexity to your self, in fact, you can go worship “white men” but do not encourage Africans or Nigerians to do the same. And I can’t believe a fellow African actually made a statement like that. Also, do you think that Yoruba people are like your people? Do you think Yorubas don’t already have tons to be proud of? Yorubas do not have to lie and should not have to lie about history in order to have something to be proud of.

  16. My quetion is how did this queen sheba get to nigeria . Is she a tourist or bussness woman . i read the history of Ethopia when i was in the college ,queen had pregnancy for king solomon but when the jews oppossed to king solomon of marring strange woman for is aganst mosenic law , she left jerusalem and gave birth to a boy named empro UHANISE the boy later became king in Ethopia therefore solomonic dynastic have being rulling over Ethopia till date . it is a speculation that queen die in nigeria ? if its true can they locate ecite place she was buried

  17. How exactly is this confirmed? When did a claim become a confirmation? Because some British researcher “discovered” something that had already been discovered (kinda like how Columbus “discovered” an already discovered country) then according to you, it is “confirmed”? There is NO real archaeological proof to back this claim up. Plus their tomb would most likely be found in Ethiopia (if it were to be found anywhere in Africa at all)

    • You pple dat are against dis claims. One thing u 4got is dat no one else, pple or country even the Ethiopians had claimed that her burial site is in their land up till 2morow. So, why the argument if Ethiopians or any other land have not come out to go against the claims.

  19. Ethiopia

    Dear Brothers and Sisters, don’t forget the ancient history of Ethiopia, in ancient time Ethiopian map includes from east to west Africa. Queen Sheba is not like European Scholars are saying she is from Arabian. She is from Black Ethiopia and Kushitic Queen. as I said, she was ruling territories from east to west. Finally, she was buried in one of her territory Nigeria.

  20. Annonymous and his likes have highly sensible and reasonable comments,i think it’s unwise and foolish to argue their points

  21. Hi
    If Quran called her Bilikisu, then there can be a relation between the two. Today Bilikisu is an Arabic name but Arabic is older than Quran. Arabic is like any other language like Latin, french, Yoruba, Igbo or Uhrobo.
    That Judaism is older than Queen of Sheba doesn’t matter because Bible didn’t mention her name. That she bears Bilikisu does not makes her a Muslim because her time was 2000 years before Islam.
    And if Ijebu claimed what they believe, and one of their believe was that Bilikisu was buried in Ijebu land, it was because Ijebu are one of the oldest tribe in the world, they are the same people mentioned in the Bible as Jebu land, now Jerusalem. They came to Ile Ife as a priest with Oduduwa, while Lamurudu/Nimrod, the father of Oduduwa who started the journey died along the way. Nimrod went about building cities but why did he chose to go back to Ile Ife, this was because that is where Orunmila and co came from to confuse men language on assignment at the Tower of Babel. Some of this spiritual being who land on Ile Ife from heaven and went to confused language at the Tower of Babel intermarry with men and blacks were made. They went back to Ile Ife then back to heaven. They brought their family to Ile Ife, and left witness along the way. But some of those left behind tried to trace their root back to Africa just like Nimrod. Oduduwa met people already in Ile Ife the Kemites. The Kemites were Igbo who rule Egypt during the time of Joseph. They marries the Israelites and some of them moved to Canaan land with Moses. They bear Asenath (a si na iti), Potiphera (po iti ife ‘ra), Manaseh (mma na si), Ephraim (efere ayin mu), Gershom (Geri chom), Eliezer (Eli eze eri). Before Egypt, Israelites bears Yoruba names like Reuben (ri ubi eni) Genesis 29:32 “He has seen my affliction”, Simeon (Simi oni) Genesis 29:33, Dan (da ni) Genesis 30:6 “judge me”, Issachar (Isa kari) Genesis 30:18 “God has given me my hire”.

    Read my notes, know the hidden truth about your history. Ijebu is older than any tribe. Ijebu is the first language spoken in the garden of Eden. The names recorded in Bible before the flood are 90% Yoruba names.
    Adam (a da amo) “we created mortal”
    Eve (eefa) meaning the origin of expansion/reproduction/multiplication, Cain (ka eeni) “acquired extra”, Abel (abi eli) “we gave birth to a man/father”, Enoch (eni okun) “Dedicated one”, Enosh (eni osha) “Immortal one”.

  22. But when King Solomon was king Christ hasn’t been born yet and Sheba was one of his wife and the present date which is been quoted by historians is either A.D I.es after the death or BD I. es before the death.and Yoruba history cannot be complete without mentioning ooduduwa which was said to have existed around 12th to 13th century after the death .and the so called name Yoruba is not even the name of the tribe it’s Ife people who are believed to be from Benin and sojourned in igala land in the 12th -13th century And without the language igala the present day Yoruba would either have been speaking the edo language which oduduwa was actually from but with his visit to igala he learnt the language but couldn’t speak it all which gave birth to Yoruba to. Read more to know. Oduduwas name was akelederan something led to why he was called oduduwa by the igalans.yorubas don’t know why some words are pronounced so they only that it’s the name for such a thing. But in igala you will know the full meanings.how comes queen Sheba of years before Christ became a Yoruba.

  23. This is strange, but I have read lots of comments through this, some are educative, some entertaining while others are hmm outrageous and unimaginable. The only thing I can say is that it’s possible for her to die and be buried in that place if maybe she was on transit and died.

  24. Hmm!well all the comments are very interesting to say the least.But,i’ll suggest will do a lot of reserch before we jump into conclusion.If really they believe her remains is still there the simple thing to do is dug it up and have it tested for us to be sure and put an end to all this argument.

  25. One thing proven: this site is in Nigeria. So whoever is buried there, either Queen of Sheba or Bilkisu Sungbo, is surely a GREAT person.
