Close to a thousand local and  domestic tourists trooped  to the Languyan  Cultural Museum in Langunguyan, Tawi-Tawi last week to witness for themselves one of the biggest pearl in the world now on display inside the museum.

Called  the “Pearl of Yshmael,” the pearl is believed to be the  2nd largest pearl in the world with a total weight of 10.3 kilograms.

It was learned that the  pearl was found  by a badjao diver at Languyan deep early this year.

Languyan deep is reportedly having a depth or about over 400 to 500 meters.

It is hope of the province that the said site or the Museum will become a leading tourist destination in the southern part of the country.

The Municipality of Languyan has greatly developed with the help of the DPWH – ARMM headed by Secretary Don Mustapha Loong. Other ARMM agencies speaheded by the Torusim Department are united in one objective which is to make Languyan successful and also a leading tourists destination in Souther Philippines..Ely Dumaboc
