Merlion

    Newer Older

    The original Merlion statue stood at the opening of the Singapore River. The then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, officiated the installation ceremony of the Merlion statue on 15 September 1972. In 2002, the statue was relocated to its current site that fronts Marina Bay with the completion of the Esplanade Bridge in 1997. The statue measures 8.6 metres high and weighs 70 tonnes. A taller replica can be found on Sentosa Island. The Merlion statue on Marina Bay was built from cement fondue by the late Singapore craftsman, Lim Nang Seng.
