The temple of the goddess Bēlet-Eanna, Ekitušgirzal (“House, Abode of Joy”), was located in the New City district of Babylon, in the eastern half of the inner city. According to the Babylonian topographical text Tintir = Babylon Tablet IV, it was one of two temples in that part of Babylon.

According to Tintir = Babylon Tablet IV (line 22) and Tablet V (lines 95–96), Ekitušgirzal was located in the New City district of Babylon and was the easternmost landmark of the New City district and the westernmost landmark of the adjoining Kullab district. It is clear that the actual boundary between those two eastern city districts of Babylon was actually a little east of this temple of the goddess Bēlet-Eanna. Ekitušgirzal was located on the bank of the eastern canal.
