Ali Paşa Aqueduct (Şirinkemer), between Metris farm and the Avasköy aqueduct, was built between 1790 and 1791. The aqueduct has six bays below and eight at the top. It is at 66 m in length.
Ali Paşa Aqueduct is located on an affluent of the Ayvalı River four kilometres northwest of Istanbul city walls. Until recently the stone inscription giving the date of construction as 1205 AH (1790) was still legible, but the aqueduct has deteriorated considerably since then.
The architect is unknown. According to the Köprülü Map of 1859 this aqueduct was known as Şirinkemer
