The living place of Noah varies among religions, but he appears to have lived in the Middle East, around the region of Mesopotamia or Turkey. Accounts of where Noah was born and raised vary, but most scholars believe that he lived in the Mesopotamia region of ancient Egypt which is near the mighty Nile River that may have been the river that produced the biblical flood for which Noah built an ark.

According to some biblical accounts, Noah lived a solitary life or lived among his fellow tribal members. In other accounts, however, he was a leader of his people and was directed by God to save them during the time of the floods.
