Bwahhhhhhhh I know that phrase and this upload really shows the fuss. A great idiom and great image.

I'm not sure how this photo, as interesting as it is, demonstrates the idiom

author says:

Thanks for the comment.

The idea of the photo and the idiom is that the decoration on the temple tower is complicated and a confusion of colours and shapes. The temple is also a typical one from the Pallava Dynasty of southern India so fits the idiom twice. Well that was my thought process anyway. I was always told that the idiom originated as a comment on the complicated decoration on temples, but no sure that is the case.

I think a bit of a tighter crop at the sides would have enhanced this photo, although the "gold" does titillate. You have fantasticated this image well with exposure and saturation.

photonut says:

yes do agree with olga on this one,tighter crop would be better

"glistens"

author says:

Yes you are right - a tighter crop would have been better especially to accentuate the idiom.

The idiom comes from 'The Merchant of Venice' and it is 'glisters'. It was changed to 'glitters' very recently.
