This is how a typical wat (temple) in Cambodia looks like. The ceilings and walls are painted with illustrations depicting the life and death of the Lord Buddha. There are golden trees where devotees rub  golden (paper) leaves on them. I don’t know what the significance of this but I’ve seen it done on temples. Candles and Buddha images of different sizes and colour are also present, and there is a distinct heady scent coming from the seemingly inexhaustible supply of lighted incense (joss) sticks.
