Standing proudly near Singapore’s bustling Central Business District, the majestic Merlion Park beckons visitors with its rich heritage and captivating charm. Located just outside the CBD’s edge at One Fullerton, this celebrated landmark artfully blends mythology with urban sophistication.
Dominating the park’s serene landscape are the awe-inspiring Merlion statues, symbolic guardians of Singapore’s vibrant culture and illustrious history. The primary statue, towering at an impressive 8.6 meters, is a powerful representation of strength and courage (symbolized by the lion) intertwined with the nation’s humble beginnings as a fishing village (represented by the fish). A refreshing stream of water gracefully spouts from its mouth, symbolizing life and prosperity.
Standing proudly beside its larger counterpart is the playful Merlion cub, a modest 2 meters tall. This younger figure, deeply rooted in its rich legacy, pays homage to Singapore’s bright future.
