The temple of the god Ninurta, Ehursagtilla (“House Which Exterminates the Mountains”), was located in the Šuanna district (modern Ishin Aswad) of Babylon. According to the Babylonian topographical text Tintir = Babylon Tablet IV, this was one of two temples in that part of the city, which was located in the southern part of the eastern half of Babylon. The building was rebuilt by the Neo-Babylonian king Nabopolassar (r. 625–605 BC).

German excavators unearthed this 1780 m² temple in 1901. The ruins of the building are now below the surface.
