The effect of direct sunlight on the reflective surfaces of an ornate temple dazzles both the eyes and spirit. The later can’t be photographed. The eye dazzle can, but in a greatly transformed version. The eye sees the color of the dazzle but at such an extreme light intensity the digital camera registers pure white.
Unless one waits until the sun is almost over the horizon.
