|Singapore consists of the main, low-lying Singapore Island and 63 smaller islands within its territorial waters. Its intricate cultural basket is woven with the fibers of traditional Chinese, Malay and Hindu cultures that have established themselves on this tiny island. The name Singapore is derived from the Sanskrit term Singa Pura which means a Lion City. This island nation offers visitors a tantalizing range of attractions from cultural, natural, and culinary delights. The Island often referred as City of diverse cultures, The Garden City, The Fun City, City for the Arts and the Gateway City. The main city area is in the south, built on the shores of the Singapore River.|
The Merlion was designed as an emblem for the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) in 1964. The designer was Mr Fraser Brunner, a member of the souvenir committee and a curator of the Van Kleef Aquarium. The Merlion has a lion head and a fish body resting on a crest of waves. The lion head symbolizes the legend of the rediscovery of Singapura, as recorded in the "Malay Annals". In ancient times, Singapore was known as Temasek, a Japanese word for sea. In the 11th century A.D, Prince Sang Nila Utama of the Sri Vijaya Empire rediscovered the island. When the Prince first landed on Singapore's shores, he sighted a mystical beast which he later learnt was a lion. The Prince then decided to name the island "Singapura" which in Sanskrit means Lion (Singa) City (Pura). The fish tail of the Merlion symbolizes the ancient city of Temasek and represents Singapore's humble beginnings as a fishing village.
There are five official Merlions statues in Singapore. Two of them are located at Merlion Park, adjacent to the promenade of One Fullerton. A third Merlion is 37 meters high and is found on Sentosa island. The fourth Merlion is located at the headquarters of the Singapore Tourism Board at 1 Orchard Spring Lane. The fifth Merlion is located at Mount Faber.
