Trikomo (Greek: Τρίκωμο; Turkish: Yeni İskele or İskele) is a town in north-eastern Mesaoria in Cyprus. De facto, it is under the control of Northern Cyprus. Trikomo gained municipality status on 1 June 1998.[2]

Following the division of the island in 1974, Turkish Cypriots from Larnaca settled in Trikomo, giving it its new name (lit. "New İskele", later shortened to İskele).[3]
