Abidinpaşa is a town in Mamak District, in southeastern Ankara Province, Turkey.

The town takes its name from a pasha by the name of Abidin. He was assigned an Ottoman administrator in Ankara around the mid-1800s. He used to like fresh air, therefore he had his mansion (governor building) built in modern Abidinpaşa, which is a place on top of the one of the highest hills in Ankara. The area, where the mansion is, is a public park and the mansion serves as an historical place to tourists today.

One of the largest hospitals in Ankara Province, the Ankara University Hospital, is located in the town.
