According to the Babylonian topographical text Tintir = Babylon, Bāb-Lugalerra was one of the four city districts of the western half of the inner city of Babylon and it contained three temples.

32.538148, 44.413087



Bāb-Lugalerra is the northern 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 Kumar district on the south, by the nu-x-ù district on the west, and by the walls Imgur-Enlil and Nēmetti-Enlil (with access in and out of the inner city by the Enlil Gate) on the north. According to Tintir = Babylon IV (lines 31–33), the temples Enunmah, Egišhurankia, and Ebursasa were located in this part of Babylon. According to Tintir = Babylon V (line 101), the western and eastern limits of Bāb-Lugalerra were the navel of the bow of the temple of the goddess Bēlet-Ninūa (Egišhurankia) and the bank of the (Arahtu) river. The district is first attested in the Old Babylonian Period.
