Explicit path integration is carried out for the Green's functions of special relativistic harmonic oscillators in ( 1+1)- and ( 3+1 )-dimensional Minkowski space-time modeled by a Klein-Gordon particle in the universal covering space-time of the anti-de Sitter static space-time. The energy spectrum together with the normalized wave functions are obtained. In the non-relativistic limit, the bound states of the one- and three-dimensional ordinary oscillators are regained.
