Opened in 1996, this is the tallest replica of the Merlion in Singapore, standing tall at a height of 37-metres high. The Merlion statue sits alongside the Merlion Walk, a 120-metre-long colourful mosaic walkway with jumping water jets and a beautiful set of Carillon bells at the end of the walkway.


Once inside the statue, you will be fascinated with the interior, which is themed as a sunken ship, as the tower is laden with treasures and jewels complemented by sounds of waves crashing , howling winds and the cries of the seagulls.


Take an elevator up to the Mouth Gallery Viewing Deck on Level 9, and you will be enthralled with the 360-degree panoramic view of the surrounding islands of Sentosa. Then climb up the stairs to the crown of the statue on Level 12, for a bird's eye view of Sentosa.


By night, this mystical Merlion can be seen glowing, from both mainland Singapore and the sea, acting as a beacon to attract visitors to the island.
