What's the reason with the closing of Merlion? Apparently in preparation to the Merlion's 40th birthday, it is currently undergoing two months of repair and cleaning. According to reports, the renovation will cover the removing of stains and filling out of the cracks. The waveform where it rests will be replaced as well.
The Merlion was built in 1972 and was conceptualized by vice-chancellor of the University of Singapore (now National University of Singapore) Kwan Sai Kheong. It stands 8.6 metres high and weighs 70 tons. It is made of cement with porcelain plate skin and small red tea cups as its eyes.
To those who are visiting the Merlion, you will see the Merlion to its full glory on September 15.
