Map of the Traditional Location of the Garden of Eden

The Garden of Eden. There is no way to know exactly where the Garden of Eden was located, but the Bible reveals a few clues. It mentions that out of the garden flowed a river and it was the source of four rivers. Two of the rivers were the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. These two rivers are still in existence today flowing from the Persian Gulf up into Iraq and through Syria and Turkey. The other two rivers are called Pishon and Gihon, and these two rivers are a complete mystery. It is traditionally accepted that the Garden of Eden was located somewhere north of the Persian Gulf as seen in the above map. Notice the Tigris and Euphrates rivers on the map.

Genesis 2:8 - "Yahweh God planted a garden eastward, in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had formed."
