India history and geographySource: Mandala Texts: Trözo: Gold and Silver Smithery
Thro (ཁྲོ་) refers to “containers for alcohol offering” and represents a product created with Trözo (སྤྲོས་བཟོ་) or Troezo (“silver and gold smithery”) which represents one of the various arts and crafts, which were promoted by the state Bhutan since the 17th century.— There are today many exquisite life size bronze and silver figures of religious heirarchs created in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries in Bhutan. Beside statues, gold and silver smiths created a wide range of religious objects. They include cups for offering such as the skull shaped thoedzu or banza (བཉྫ་), many types of butter lamp containers called kongbu (ཀོང་བུ་), offering vase known as bumpa (བུམ་པ་), ceremonial water jugs called chapbum (ཆབ་བུམ་), cups for water offering called ting (ཏིང་), containers for alcohol offering called thro (ཁྲོ་) and phudchung (ཕུད་ཅུང་), bowls for fruit offering called thokoe (མཐོ་སྐོས་), container for grains called druphor (འབྲུ་ཕོར་) or mangu (མང་གུ་), etc.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
