|Bible Question: where was the garden of eden located|
Bible Answer: Genesis 2:8 -- "And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed." _The Septuagint has paradeisos "parkland," hence "paradise" for garden. It was only a part of Eden (cf. vv 10-14). It was literally "off east," most likely in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq), since two of the four rivers are the well-known Tigris and Euphrates (v. 14 -- the Hiddekel is generally recognized to be the Tigris)._ --Extracted from footnotes in the King James Study Bible, Nelson. Thus, the garden of Eden may have been in the fertile land near the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in modern Iraq.
