If you are with your tour guide during the time you are in Merlion, this is a perfect time for you to learn about the history of Merlion. Merlion originated from two words “mer” for mermaid and “lion,” hence its appearance. According to oral history, there was a prince named Sang Nila Utama who came to Singapore, and the first thing he saw upon his arrival was a lion. Because of this, he called the place “Singapura” which means “The Lion City.”
