The legendary Merlion is a mythical creature with a lion’s head and a fish’s body – as a guardian of prosperity which personifies Singapore’s history as an important seaport. The lion head depicts the folklore of Prince Sang Nila Utama’s discovery of lion (singa) and City (pura) while the fish tail symbolises the fishing village of ‘Temasek’, also known as ‘sea-town’ in Javanese. Today, the majestic Merlion is a Singapore icon attracting visitors from all around the world. If you walk past some of the significant sites in the Lion City, you’ll meet more than one Merlion. There’s the 8.6-metre porcelain statue at Merlion Park, another 2-metre cub porcelain statue right behind it, a 3-metre polymarble statue at Tourism Court as well as another one of the same height on Mount Faber. Last but definitely not least, there’s the majestic 37-metre-tall concrete Merlion on Sentosa Island. Unlike its predecessor by the Esplanade, Sentosa Merlion distinguishes itself as the only Merlion in Singapore where you can discover the urban myth and uncover treasure within its attraction trail.
