Cordillera - The famous the Igorot Stone Kingdom in Baguio city is likely to be opening soon after the city prosecutor's office junked the charges filed against the owner of the said tourist spot.

It can be recalled that last year, the city mayor's office has ordered the closure of the newest tourist destination over permit and safety issues.

However, the city prosecutor's office has said the owners of Igorot Stone Kingdom were able to complete all the building requirements imposed by the local government for the issuance of the building permits.

"Going over the issues, it appears that the respondents were able to comply with the requirements as prescribed under Presidential Decree 1096 regarding the structure complained of," read in the 2-page resolution penned by Prosecuting Attorney Oliver Isabelo Prudencio and approved by City Prosecutor Conrado Catral Jr.

The Igorot Stone Kingdom is a man-made attraction located along Longlong Road in Pinsao Proper. The park showcases the ingenuity, skills and knowledge of the Igorots in stone laying which their ancestors passed to them.

Among the main attractions at the stone kingdom is a tower that depicts the fantasy story of Gatan and Bangan, an Igorot man and woman who survived the great holocaust, a fertility stone tower, and a Kabunyan (Igorot God) tower.
