Enlil's Great House

Site of Enlil’s Great Cedar Built House and Enclosure on the High Rock. Various descriptions from the ancient texts are clear in providing the evidence that we are looking here at the E-Kur, mountain house, where the Gods lived and divine decrees were given, kingship was exercised, and from which the cosmic waters of fertility flowed. Descriptions of the great cedar built house within the sanctuary, with the building of stone fireplaces, and where Adam and Eve spoke to the Serpent, all help to support the O’Brien thesis that this is the site of the Garden of Eden.
