Skywatch over Merlion Park

We made a brief stop at Merlion Park after visiting Singapore Zoo. It was a gloomy evening when we arrived but fortunately, I managed to take some quick shots of the Merlion and the impressive skyline before the rain began.

The Merlion that roars. It has a lion's head with a mermaid's body and a stream of water gushing out of its mouth.

There's always a huge flock of tourists in every corner of the park with plenty of interesting photo ops for visitors. I too had a lot of fun photographing the monument in different perspectives.
