The temple of the goddess Ninmah/Bēlet-ilī, Emah (“Exalated House”), was located in the Ka-dingirra district (modern Kasr) of Babylon. According to the Babylonian topographical text Tintir = Babylon Tablet IV, this was one of four temples in that part of the city, which was located in the northern part of the eastern half of Babylon. Emah was rebuilt by the Assyrian king Ashurbanipal (r. 668–ca. 631 BC) and the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II (r. 604–562 BC).
