Apollo, Serina and Adama entering the ruins of Eden on Kobol (TOS: "Lost Planet of the Gods, Part II")

Eden is an ancient, uninhabited city on the planet Kobol.

According to the Book of the Word, Eden was the largest city on the planet. Due to an ecological disaster that had caused the exodus from Kobol, Eden had become a desert, populated by ruins.

The structures of Eden are populated by pyramid structures (an architectural trait that is also apparent on Caprica). The Tomb of the Ninth Lord of Kobol is located within what remained of the city.

Commander Adama and two others explore Eden in hopes of finding information on the lost colony known as Earth.

Eden is further damaged by a Cylon attack from Baltar's forces in the form of a Cylon Raider phalanx, as ordered by his cogitator Lucifer. This attack prevents Adama from gaining much information on Earth's whereabouts (TOS: "Lost Planet of the Gods, Part II")


  • This view of Eden was shot at the ruins of Temple of Luxor, in its Outer Court, in Egypt. The human statues are actually images of the Egyptian ruler, Ramses II.
  • In Christianity, Eden is the paradise which mankind lived in harmony with God until their downfall.
