Vietnam, 1000 dong, 2003. 

There are quite a few cultures that have temples, besides Indian and Hinduism. Even the Romans and Jews had them, in ancient times.

The reverse of the Iraq1 1 dinar coin of 1982 features the Etemenanki ("temple of the foundation of heaven and earth"), a ziggurat dedicated to Marduk in the city of Babylon of the 6th century BCE Neo-Babylonian dynasty. Originally seven stories in height, little remains of it now except ruins.
