The Qishla of Mecca (Turkish: Mekke Redif Kışlası) was built in the 18th century to be a military castle of the Ottoman army in Mecca (nowadays in Saudi Arabia). The building was located in the Jarwal district. It was demolished by the Saudi government to build several modern hotels facing the Grand Mosque.

The word Qishla (modern Turkish: Kışla) is a Turkish word meaning barracks.
