Do you know the original position of the Merlion? The Merlion was moved after the completion of the Esplanade Bridge blocked its view. This relocation allows for everyone to have a front or side view of the Merlion with the city skyline in the background whilst taking photos.

The Merlion is aligned to face east which is considered the most auspicious direction. It cost 7.5million dollars in total for the relocation which includes a brand new pump system.
