Asian myths similar to Cassandra's


Recommended Posts



In the greek myth of Cassandra, she received the premonitiom gift by the god Apollo, who later damned her to not be believed because he wanted to make her suffering as revenge for not having sex with him. Cassandra saw in her premonitory visions the total destruction of Troya, but no one believed her, so she wasn't able to avoid Troya's fate (Source: https://www.britannica.com/topic/Cassandra-Greek-mythology).


I'd like to know similar myths in asian traditions (Chinese, japanese, etc). Is there one or more similar myths in asian culture? Thanks in advance.
