In China, the turtle has a particularly strong and important symbolism, making itself the allegory of the world. The belly of the turtle forms a square, inscribed in the circle formed by the shell, thus depicting the schematic conception of the Chinese world: the square in the center of the world represents China, the parts between the shell and the belly represent the rest of the world , the "barbarians," while the celestial world extends beyond the circle. It is known in China as holding the secrets of heaven and earth. In the cult of ancestors, the Chinese believed they could establish communication with the world of the dead through turtles (this is the principle of scapulomancia). Thus, they wrote on a piece of turtle shell a question they wanted to ask the ancestors, after which they exposed this piece in flames. The cracking of the shell under the effect of heat was to mean the response of the ancestors. The piece was then entrusted to a divinatory college that interpreted the cracks.

The turtle is also considered in China as a symbol of longevity.

In Japan, the turtle is a symbol of luck and longevity. The turtle is considered an auspicious animal that is supposed to bring 10,000 years of happiness. In Japanese folklore, the kappa is an evil turtle-bodied monster that lives in rivers, attracting children to drown them.

In India too, the turtle takes on some importance in myths and legends. The Kurma turtle is the second avatar, the second incarnation of Vishnu on earth (descended to show the way to men, to save humanity). Schematically, it is still the turtle that supports the world, carrying it on its shell.
