The Merlion, a mythical creature with a lion’s head and a fish’s body, is a national icon that was installed on 15 September 1972. The eight-metre tall Merlion sculpture, situated at the mouth of the Singapore River, is a favourite among photographers and visitors. Legend has it that Sang Nila Utama, the Palembang king who discovered the island of Temasek, first caught sight of a lion on the island. Amazed at its grace and strength, he renamed the island Singapura, or ‘Lion City’
