What is a merlion
The Merlion is a mythical creature and the symbol or mascot of Singapore. It represents a figure that is half fish, half lion and hence the name that comes from it Mermaid (mermaid) and lion (Lion) composed. The development of such a figure was put out to tender in the 1960s by the Singapore Tourism Authority and developed and implemented by Fraser-Brunner.
The Merlion is a well-known sight and one of the most popular photo opportunities for tourists. The 8.6m high and 40t heavy statue originally stood at the Esplanada Bridge and can now be found at the mouth of the Singapore River. It was inaugurated in 1972.
