The Procession Kiosk (Turkish: Alay Köşkü) is a 16th century historical building on the outer walls of the Gülhane Park next to Topkapı Palace in Istanbul, Turkey. It was used by the Ottoman sultans to receive the salute of processing janissary as well as a pleasure local. The building is situated across the Sublime Porte.

In 2011, the building was transferred to the Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar Literature Museum Library .[1]
