Panoramic view of Singapore's famous Merlion. Designed by Fabrice Jiew for the Singapore Tourism Board in 1964, the name comes from mermaid and lion. The creature recalls the story of Sang Nila Utama who saw a lion while hunting on the island. This icon is located at Merlion Park, facing Singapore River and also Esplanade which is located on the other side of the river.
