    He lifted the entire village on his head and carried it to a place...

    He lifted the entire village on his head and carried it to a place where there was rain.
    He lifted the entire village and, placing it on his head, carried it to a place where there was rain.

    Are both sentences correct and have the same meaning?

    Thanks.

    The same effective meaning, yes.

    In the first, I'd use onto his head.
