Access to the stages of the ziggurat, from the court beneath, was had by an inclined plane on the south-east side.
In the west corner stood a temple, with a stagetower (ziggurat) adjoining.
The approach to this ziggurat was toward the north-east, and on this side lay also the principal rooms of the temple of which this was the tower.
The city was divided into two parts by a canal, on an island in which stood the temple, E-mach, with a ziggurat, or stage tower.
To the north-east of the ziggurat stood, apparently, the House of Bel, and in the courts below the ziggurat stood various other buildings, shrines, treasure chambers and the like.
