It is administratively a part of the Markaz Rif Dimashq District of the Rif Dimashq Governorate. Nearby localities include Jobar and al-Qabun to west and northwest, Harasta and Arbin to north and northeast, Hamouriyah and Saqba to east, Kafr Batna to southeast, Ein Tarma to the south and Al-Maamouniye to southwest. The Aleppo - Damascus Highway is the districts boundary in the west, separating Zamalka from the Jobar municipality of Damascus.

Zamalka was visited by Syrian geographer Yaqut al-Hamawi in the early 13th-century, during Ayyubid rule. He noted that it was "a village of the Ghautah of Damascus. The Syrians often pronounce the name Zamluka."
