Kumar is the central district of the eastern part of the western half of the inner city of Babylon. It is bounded by the Arahtu River on the east, by the Bāb-Lugalerra district on the north, by the nu-x-ù district on the west, and by the Tuba district on the south. According to Tintir = Babylon IV (lines 34–40), the temples Enamtila, Eešmah, Ekadima, Emesikilla, Edikukalama, Eʾesirkalama, Enamhe were located in this part of Babylon. According to Tintir = Babylon V (line 100), the  western and eastern limits of Kumar were the Akus Gate and the temple Enamtila, which probably was located close to the western bank of the Arahtu River. The district is first attested in the Old Babylonian Period.
