The Merlion symbol has come to be identified with Singapore. Originally it used to stand guard at the mouth of the Singapore River, but in 2002, was moved to the Merlion Park, located next to One Fullerton, overlooking scenic Marina Bay. The Merlion is a mythical beast that is a cross between a fish and a lion. The fish symbolizes Singapore's close association with the sea, while the lion head refers to the legendary sighting of a lion during the discovery of ancient Singapore. A stroll in Merlion Park is highly recommended as it yields great views of Singapore's colonial district.
