Kullab is the northeastern district of the eastern part of the eastern half of the inner city of Babylon. It is bounded by the New City district in the north and west, by the Eridu district in the west, by the walls Imgur-Enlil and Nēmetti-Enlil in the east, and by the TE.E district in the south. According to Tintir = Babylon IV (lines 24–27), the temples Ekišnugal, Emekiliburur, Eurgubba, and Esag were located in this part of Babylon. According to Tintir = Babylon V (line 96), the western and eastern limits of Kullab were the temple of the goddess Bēlet-Eanna (Ekitušgirzal) and the Marduk Gate.
