An altar lamp is a lamp specifically used in religious contexts, typically in places of worship such as churches, temples, mosques, or synagogues. It serves a symbolic and practical purpose during religious ceremonies and rituals.

Symbolically, the altar lamp often represents the light of faith or the presence of the divine. In Christian traditions, for example, it symbolizes the presence of Christ as the Light of the World. It also signifies the perpetuity of God's presence and vigilance.
