Kildara (Ancient Greek: Κιλδαρα) or Killara (Κιλλαρα) was a town of ancient Caria. It was a polis (city-state) and was in a sympoliteia with Theangela and Thodosa.[1] Kildara is the find-spot of numerous inscriptions in the Carian language and is the name of one specific type of Carian script.[2]

Its site is located near Asardağ, Asiatic Turkey.[3][4]
