The Rope Altar is the altar/device used to strangle/tear the Rope Shrine Maidens of the Himuro Mansion limb from limb. There are five points of the altar that correspond to each of the five gods housed in the five shrines that surround and protect the mansion. Each point is attached to a rack-like device. The ropes are tied around each device and attached to one of the maiden's limbs or neck. Each of the four priests and Ceremony Master turn the devices until the maiden has been dismembered and her blood has saturated the ropes. The ropes are then taken and used in the Ceremony of Ropes to bind the Hell Gate closed.
