For the last 3000 years,Panchaloha(literally meaning an alloy of five metls) has been most widely used for making idols and pooja vessals..This five-metal combination of Cu,Au,Ag,Pb and Zn (aluminium,bronze,Copper,Silver,Zinc) was considered to be highly auspicious combination. Pancha Patra is also to be made only this way. But due to high cost of these metals,copper,Brass,and silver pancha patra have come into vouge. They are only single metal patras,and they should not or cannot be called a Panchapatra.
