You need a program that can open archives. The best free easy to use one is 7zip. Download and install it and right click on the rar file and go to 7zip in the menu and then click open as archive. Then drag and drop the files needed into you minecraft saves folder.

How do you get to the temple of notch on Minecraft?

This is a custom map created by another user. To get the map for the Temple of Notch, look it up on Google or Youtube and find the link to the Minecraft Forums site, where the map is located. After downloading the map, go to your start menu and type in %appdata% into the search/run bar. After clicking enter, go into .minecraft and then into the folder titled Saves. Next, go to your Downloads folder in a different window and drag the map file into your Saves folder. After doing this, it should show up on Singleplayer maps! It is also possible that you may need to open the .rar file and take out a folder to use. To do this, you would need a program such as WinRAR or 7zip. After opening the map file, drag the folder into your Saves folder under .minecraft. It works pretty much the same way.
