Tuba is the southern 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 north, 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 Šamaš Gate) on the south. According to Tintir = Babylon IV (lines 41–43), the temples Ekitušgarza, Esabad, and Ešiddukišara were located in this part of Babylon. According to Tintir = Babylon V (line 102), the southern and eastern limits of Tuba were the Šamaš Gate and the Arahtu River.
