I think you're referring to the Karni Mata temple in Deshnoke, Rajasthan, India.

Bikaner is the closest town of tourist interest and where you will probably want to base yourself to see it.

Hi

Rat temple is in Deshnok , a place very near to Bikaner, it's
one of the main city of Rajasthan State.
Bikaner approx 600 Kms. fm Delhi, you can take train or
drive first to Mandawa midway between Delhi
and Bikaner. Besides Rat Temple Bikaner is famous for FORT
and Camel Bredding Farm.

There is local deity called Karni Mata and this temple is dedicated
to Goddess Karni Mata. There is saying if you happen to see
WHITE RAT , you will be fortunate. If by mistake you kill any rat
then you have to offer replica of rat made of Gold or Silver.
Rates are considered very sacred in this temple .

Feel free if you need any fruther information.

Regards

Vinod
