Tarbiṣu, now modern Sherif Khan, was an Assyrian city located about 5 kilometers north of Nineveh. It was the principal cult center of the god Nergal in Assyria. Starting in the 8th and 7th centuries B.C., Tarbiṣu was a royal city and one of the primary residences of the Assyrian crown prince, who was trained in the art of kingship in the palace built there.

The palace (the so-called "House of Succession" or "Small Palace") and the temple of the god Nergal (Egallammes) have been partially uncovered. Excavations were conducted in 1850, 1852, and 1968-69.
