The purpose of the Asian mythology project is to create high-quality articles dealing with the body of myths from ancient East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Dharmic cultures. Our goal is to create easy to read, informational, and accurate articles that are properly sourced. This project contains two minor projects: Japanese mythology project and Hindu mythology project

To participate, simply sign the list below, click a red link on one of the Asian mythology templates and create an article! Be sure to consider the format and information in other articles already created before starting a new one, so all articles will be consistent.

Additionally, you can help with the project by improving already existing articles, or rewriting any Asian mythology articles that may have been plagiarized form material from other sites. Plagiarized material is strictly forbidden on this website.
