A place that is known for its Parathas, lives for the Parathas and offers nothing but Parathas, Murthal, situated on National Highway 1 connecting Delhi to Amritsar, is a step away from being the Paratha capital of India. A large village in the Sonepat district of Haryana, Murthal has become synonymous to the go to destination to have some of the most mouthwatering Parathas in the world. Established by a few people in order to serve as an eating junction for the truck drivers, its dhabas soon gained popularity and found themselves on a list of favorites of the capital's youth.
It is usually a year round destination with evenings preferred for a visit during summers. Winters are a great time to visit Murthal, especially early in the morning to have some lip smacking Parathas with a hot cup of coffee and the mist all around you.
Air: Nearest airport is IGI airport in Delhi from where you can catch a cab or a Haryana Roadways bus till Murthal.
Rail: Nearest railway station is in Delhi, Panipat, and Sonepat
Road: Murthal is connected to Delhi by NH 1 and is just 50 km away from Delhi, Panipat and Sonepat. It is also well connected by Haryana Roadways buses.
There isn't much need to stay at Murthal. Yet Delhi or Panipat should be preferred a they have many suitable accommodation options.
Murthal Haveli and Jurassic Park, an amusement park, are the few options for sightseeing in the area.
Eating at the countless famous dhabas that dot Murthal's highways, is quite an experience.
Tandoori Parathas and delicious Lassi.
Sukhdev Dhaba, Gulshan Dhaba and Ahuja Dhaba
While Murthal makes for a good day trip for lunch or an early morning trip for breakfast from the cities around it, it would be most convenient to visit the dhabas as a stopover as you travel between Chandigarh or Amritsar and Delhi.
Only vegetarian food is available here along with few options in continental cuisine, but one should definitely try the food, unless he/she is extremely hygiene conscious.
