Singapore’s iconic landmark the Merlion is a must see major tourist attraction. Located at One Fullerton, Singapore, near the Central Business District. The Merlion is the mythical symbol of Singapore. The fish tail represents Singapore’s origin as a fishing village when it was called Temasek (“Sea Town” in Javanese). The Lion head represents Singapore’s original name ‘Singapura’ meaning “Lion City”.
