4 Days Eastern Part Of Turkey

The earliest reference to gardens comes to us from the first book of the Bible, the book of Genesis. In it, we find the tree of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden and the legendary figures of Adam and Eve. God places Adam in the Garden of Eden, which means a place of pleasure and pleasure. There he lives full of wisdom and beauty and is free from power and evil.

The location of Eden is described in the Book of Genesis as the source of the four arms. Among scholars who consider this to be true, various suggestions have been made about its location: at the head of the Persian Gulf, in southern Mesopotamia (now Iraq), where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers flow from Turkey to the Persian Gulf, and in Armenia.
