Personally, i'm not too sure abt the answer to this, but it certainly looks like part of a very huge tomb. Especially tombs of the very wealthy chinese way back in the early 1900s to 1950s....

I've been intrigued with these lion statues near Margaret Drive while walking to Queenstown library.

Does anyone have any information about them and what are they suppose to guard ?







From the photo, they seems to be guarding the orange bus parked behind :sweat:

Can you provide a picture of the lion's back and a closer picture of the front view of the lion?

these lions are not the chinese stone carvings which you will see at buildings (for example, ngee ann city, and you are able to tell the sex of the lions for the chinese type). In fact they look like the ones on the old one dollar coins.

The Margaret Drive area is slated for development soon and I don't know what will be the future for these stone lion statues, it's quite huge about 1.5-2 metre and I've never seen these type of carving.

hmm....It would definitely be interesting to discover the truth behind these lions....

Btw, if there indeed was a buddha statue there previously, anyone have any idea why was it there in the first place? I mean, well, it is kindda weird to locate a buddha statue in the middle of this bare land. And from the looks of it, the buddha statue should be kindda huge too...

Yeah, still looking for answers and it'll be a massive Buddha statue.
