The temple of the goddess Ašratu, Ehilikalamma (“House of the Luxuriance of the Land”), was located in the Ka-dingirra district (modern Sahn) of Babylon. According to the Babylonian topographical text Tintir = Babylon Tablet IV, this was one of four temples in that part of the city, which was located in the northern part of the eastern half of Babylon.

Iraqi excavators unearthed and reconstructed this 260 m² temple in 1979–81. The identification of the building as the temple of the goddess Ašratu is based on the fact that the Babylonian topographical text Tintir = Babylon Tablet IV lists four temples in the Ka-dingirra district (modern Sahn). Because the other three temples in this part of Babylon (EniggidrukalamasumaEmašdari, and Emah) have been securely identified from in-situ inscriptions, it is plausible that Ehilikalamma should be identified with Temple D II.
