The Abou Ben Adhem Shrine Mosque (often known locally as "the Shrine Mosque" or simply "the Shrine") is a building of arabesque design located in downtown Springfield, Greene County, Missouri, United States. It was built in 1923 for a cost of $600,000. It is owned by the Abou Ben Adhem Shriners and is the site of many events and an annual Shrine Circus. The five-story building includes a large auditorium with seating for over 4,000. The name derives from Ibrahim ibn Adham, taken from the poem "Abou Ben Adhem" by Leigh Hunt.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
