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.
Set foot in the Merlion’s mouth to get up close and personal with the legend. But don’t stop till you get to the crown! At 60 metres above sea level, you will actually be seeing Singapore through the perspective of the Guardian of Prosperity.
Come soak up the 360-degree commanding view and bask in the aura of this endearing national symbol. You’ll see why legends, myths and stories all point to this regal creature for the swift recovery of Singapore’s economy from the Asian financial crisis.

2016-08-23 23:03:25This statue is an impressive theme piece for the Sentosa Island Resort. You can buy a ticket to go inside the statue and get a view from its mouth and also its head!Kenneth Lau
2016-07-29 22:28:44This merlion is situated at Sentosa island and is a mimic of what I saw at Marina Bay. Its very nice to see both during day and at night and is quite nice to take a walk around.Jedd Loh
