Merlion Park : Singapore

You’ve probably seen images of Singapore’s national icon, the mythical Merlion with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. Today, you can glimpse this legend at Merlion Park. Spouting water from its mouth, the Merlion statue stands tall at 8.6 metres and weighs 70 tonnes.

This icon is a ‘must-see’ for tourists visiting Singapore, similar to other significant landmarks around the world.

Built by local craftsman Lim Nang Seng, it was unveiled on 15 September 1972 by then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew at the mouth of the Singapore River, to welcome all visitors to Singapore.
