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.

Cordillera - The owner of the famous Igorot Stone Kingdom in Baguio has given update on the situation of the structure after the region has been hit by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake.

"No damage, not a single crack on the structure and on the groundworks, not even a single stone fell. A proof of the reliability of the Igorot way of Stone laying," Pio Velasco wrote on a post.

He attributed to the Igorot engineering that is being in communication with the natural properties and contours of the ground.

"It is literally down to earth, thereby it is a system closer to nature.  To those who did not believe and who pre judged us of having constructed an unsafe facility, we are so sorry to disappoint you. The Igorot Stone Kingdom passed the test," Velasco added. 

In anticipation of aftershocks, the facility had to be temporarily closed.
