Is the garden of eden still in the Middle East?
In Genesis 3:24 GNTD it says “Then at the east side of the garden he put living creatures and a flaming sword which turned in all directions. This was to keep anyone from coming near the tree that gives life.”
So I get from this that the garden is still there but if it is then why can’t we see it. Did God keep us blind to it?

I'll share a startling biblical truth with you. The city of Jerusalem is the exact site of the original Garden of Eden. Its where all sacrifices were performed -- on Temple Mount throughout the Bible. Jesus Christ was crucified (sacrificed) in Jerusalem.

A documentary showed that it was in north west Iran . Where there are plenty of fruit trees and water ; and the climate off the Mediterranean flows through that region . And also there is red soil there .

The tree of life has been moved to heaven. There was a world wide flood that destroyed the garden of Eden. God took the tree of life and the tree of Good and evil to heaven. the tree of life is spoken of in Revelation as the tree that has 12 different fruit one for each month and also the leaves are for the stripes that we have it the leaves are used to heal us of our infirmities. Thanks for the question.

While not explicitly stated in the Bible, one might assume that the Garden was destroyed in the Flood, it would have to have been because very little, if any plant life would have survived being submerged at that depth of water for that length of time, not to mention the devastating force of the amount of rain (something like a meter a minute) and resulting flash floods.
Of course, such a deluge would have destroyed any wooden boat the size of the ark and most likely many of our modern ships as well.

The fact of the matter is, it never was.

After Adam’s banishment from the paradisaic garden, with no one to cultivate it and to take care of it, it may be assumed that it merely grew up in natural profusion with only the animals to inhabit its confines until it was obliterated by the surging waters of the Flood, its location lost to man except for the divine record of its existence.

Who says we can't see it? How would we know if we were seeing it? It would have trees and plants of various kinds, just like many other areas.
