The Ulai may have been the eastern branch of the Choasper (Kerkhan), which divided into two branches some 20 miles above the city of Susa. Hence Daniel (8:2,16) speaks of standing "between the banks of Ulai", i.e., between the two streams of the divided river. Another possible location of this river is the Rud-e Karun, a tributary of the Shatt al-Arab(known as Arvand Rud in Iran) .
Ulai mentions in the Bible:
- Daniel 8:2 – "I had a second vision in which I was in Susa, the chief city of Babylonia`s Elam province. I was beside the Ulai river..." (Contemporary English Version)
- Daniel 8:16 – "And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision."
