En la ciudad de Singapur hay una mezcla de animal mitad pez mitad León que es el símbolo de la ciudad llamado MERLION.
La ciudad-estado más próspera del mundo no deja indiferente a nadie.
Y que decir de uno de los hoteles más conocidos mundialmente que a marcado un antes y un despues en el mundo de la arquitectura el Marina Bay Sands.
El SKyline de Singapur.

The Merlion is a mythical creature and like most mythical creatures, its origins are shrouded in mystery. Actually, nobody really has a clue where it popped from. This creature with the body of a fish and the head of a lion can be found on Etruscan coins of the Hellenistic period and on Indian murals at Ajanta and Mathura; maybe that’s why Singapore holiday packages from India are so popular. These lions with fishtails or ‘heraldic sea- lions’, are an established element of Western heraldry, and have been used on the coat of arms of the cities of Portsmouth and Great Yarmouth in the United Kingdom; the City of Manila; and the East India Company.

Also recent studies show that lions have never existed on the island.

In Sanskrit, ‘Singa’ means lion and ‘Pura’ means city. The island was originally called Temasek, Javanese for ‘Sea Town’. The story of Sang Nila Utama is most popularly accepted as the story of Singapore. The Sejarah Melayu proclaims him the first king of Suvarnabhoomi (ancient Sanskrit name of Malay peninsula), the son of an Indian Prince and a fairy princess who lived under the sea. From atop a hill on Bintan, he spotted an island with blinding white sand that intrigued him.

Singapore’s Merlion

He alighted on the island amidst a thunderstorm and spotted an auspicious beast identified as a lion by his chief minister who was on board his ship. And so he (re)named the island Singapura. In the darkness of the violent storm, we’ll forgive him for mistaking what was in all probability a Malay tiger to be a lion.

So, there’s some explanation for the lion part, but the fishtail, there’s no evidence of mermaids having existed on the island either!

According to other local annals, the Merlion was a huge monster that protected the inhabitants of ancient Singapore. In the face of any potential danger, the Merlion would emerge from the sea and save the settlement of Singapore from destruction, a little too far-fetched this one!

Whatever the story, do not miss a photo with this symbol of Singapore Tourism.
Singapore, 2018
Republic of Singapore gained independence on 9th August 1965 with Lee Kuan Yew as the Prime Minister and Yusof bin Ishak as the President, during that period only the country moved from third world economy to first world. In the 1980s, Singapore began to upgrade to higher-technological industries...
The Lion city consists of 63 islands, including the main island, Pulau Ujong. There are two man-made connections to Johor, Malaysia: the Johor–Singapore Causeway in the north and the Tuas Second Link in the west. Jurong Island, Pulau Tekong, Pulau Ubinand Sentosa are the largest of Singapore's smaller islands. The highest natural point is Bukit Timah Hill at 537 ft. A fantastic city to explore! Go Singapore
