The only thing the Bible tells us concerning the Garden of Eden's location is found in Genesis 2:10-14, "A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwate...
Dear beloved; Blessings in Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour’s Name; Here is the answer to your question to my own research: So specific is the biblical description of Eden that scores of people have sought to locate it. The Bible tells of a land in the East, out of which a single river divided into four; The Pishon, the Gishon, the Tigris, and the Euphrates. Locating the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers is not difficult of course. Because they still exist. But in the absence of date concerning the Pishon and Gishon, the search for the location of Eden has been unsuccessful. Places that have been suggested include Ethiopia, Turkey, even India. But in recent years, Dr. Juris Zarins of Southwest Missouri State University has concluded that the Garden of Eden lies beneath the waters of the Persian Gulf. For Thousands of years, starting at the time of The Great Ice Age, what is now the Persian Gulf was a dry land. Over the centuries, the climate varied but by 6000 BC, the rains were heavy and the rivers ran full. Watered by four rivers, such a place would be a natural paradise. Thousands of animal remains found in the Gulf area suggest that game was abundant. Furthermore, the presence of stone tools provides evidence of human habitation. Geological investigations indicate that two gulleys, known today as the Wadi Rimah and the Wadi Batin trace the course of ancient rivers. Zarins believes that these are the remains of the Pishon River, and that the Gishon is the modern Karun, emptying into the Gulf. Humbly Yours. Blessings.
