Around 690 B.C., the Neo-Assyrian king Sennacherib started construction on a New Year’s Temple for Nineveh’s tutelary deity Ištar. Ešahulezenzagmukam, whose Sumerian ceremonial name means "House of Joy and Gladness for the Festival of the Beginning of the Year" was never completed and work on it appears to have come to a complete stop ca. 688 B.C., when Sennacherib decided to rebuild the Akītu Temple at Ashur instead.

Ešaḫulezenzagmukam was intended to replace the existing akītu-house, which was situated inside Nineveh, perhaps in the citadel. Because this structure was never finished, the former New Year's Temple remained in use until the end of the Assyrian Empire.
