The forbidden altar is a customizable houseware furniture item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons introduced in the 2.0 Free Update. The item's top surface can be used to place smaller items, such as miscellaneous furniture.

The forbidden altar can be obtained from crafting, which requires 30× stone. The recipe for this item can be obtained from lazy villagers, either when they are crafting in their house, or when the player receives their message bottle from the beach. The item's variation can be customized either by using 6 customization kits or by Cyrus at Harv's Island for  4,500 Bells.

No villagers have this item in their home.

In Happy Home Paradise, this item is unlocked for use in designing when doing a vacation home request for Ankha, Apollo, Bonbon, Diva, Huck, Louie, Lucky, Roswell, Samson, Sly, Static, Tucker, Vic, and Vladimir.

In the designing process of Happy Home Paradise, Roswell and Tucker require this item to be placed in or outside their vacation home.
