The fascinating legend behind Sentosa Merlion: It is believed that Merlion frequented Sentosa Island each year with the sole purpose of guarding the country’s well-being and prosperity. One night, the island was almost ripped apart by a violent storm but Merlion fought back and kept destruction at bay with his magical powers. Thus the island was saved and Merlion has since dwelt on the island to preserve its well-being.
