Always remember in mind that while paying respects to the statues in the temples and ruins, praying is usually free and up to the individual. But once you accept the incense sticks offered to you by the monks or old men sitting alone in the temples who take care of the temples and ruins, including clothing the statues and providing incense sticks, you are at a liability of paying a small amount of donation to the welfare and care of the statue. Although not compulsory or life threatening, you may get a sour look or get chased after if you refuse to offer a donation after accepting the incense sticks.

This is also very true about the National Museum in Phnom Penh, where there is one such men/lady in every room, and you often have an incense-stick in your hands before you know it.
