    A political storm has stalled the rebuilding of Kathmandu's oldest building, Kasthamandap.

    The 12th-century structure collapsed during a powerful earthquake in 2015.

    Locals want it restored, but they are worried that Nepali law will mean the project will go to the lowest bidder, and result in shoddy work.

    Al Jazeera's Subina Shrestha reports from Kathmandu.
