E-anna (Sumerian: 𒂍𒀭𒈾 É-AN.NA, house of heavens) was an ancient Sumerian temple in Uruk. Considered "the residence of Inanna" and Anu, it is mentioned several times in the Epic of Gilgamesh, and elsewhere.[1] The evolution of the gods to whom the temple was dedicated is the subject of scholarly study.[1]
