In the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha by James H. Charlesworth in the book of Jubilees chapter 4, it reads:

'And because of him Enoch none of the waters of the flood came upon the whole land of Eden, for he Enoch was put there for a sign and so that he Enoch might bear witness against all of the children of men so that he Enoch might relate all of the deeds of the generations until the day of judgement'.

Then it goes on to say there were four sacred places upon the earth and names those four places.
