The Secret Altar appears in Act II in the Howling Plateau. It's very small dungeon that appears in one of three locations within the area.

It forms part of the Shadows in the Desert quest. If the ritual taking place here is disrupted within 4 minutes of taking the quest (together with the ritual in the Hidden Conclave) an achievement will be earned (detailed below).
