The Chinese in Melaka likes the lion because they see the lion as a  symbol of auspiciousness.
A very good example of lion can be seen at the entrances of Cheng Hoon Teng temple and they are made of wood. Stone lions are found on entrances of all other temples in Melaka.

Lion dances is an important component of traditional Chinese procession and ceremonies.
