TE.E (which might be read as either Tê or Kisīri) is the southernmost district of the eastern part of the eastern half of the inner city of Babylon. It is bounded on the south and east by the walls Imgur-Enlil and Nēmetti-Enlil (with access in and out of the inner city by the Zababa Gate), by the Šuanna district on the west, and by the Kullab distrist on the north. The temple Emeurur and the shrines Edurkuga and Ekagula were located in TE.E; none of these buildings/structures have been discovered/excavated. 

According to Tintir = Babylon V (lines 97), the eastern limit of this district was the Zababa Gate, while the western limit was regarded as the dais Iqullū-ilū-ana-Marduk.
