If you are going to Shamlaji or Udaipur from Ahmedabad and if you have 30 mins spare or you are looking for places around Shamlaji/Udaipur route. Then Rajendranagar Hill is a must-go destination. It’s a small hill and has a beautiful view of the indrasi reservoir.
Currently, as of 26 Nov 2020, the condition of the Road is not good in between Ahmedabad to Shamlaji. So if you divert your route a little approx (10+ km more in total km). You will get a chance to see the photogenic place. Here its photo
The place-name is Hadmat Sunset Point or Rajendranagar Hill
How to Reach Rajendranagar Hill or Hadmat Sunset Point
If you add Hadmat Sunset Point or Rajendranagar Hill on your journey then the only difference is 4 km. Here are the distances. Hadmat sunset point is considered as Hill Station near Himmatnagar.
- Shalmaji to Rajendranagar hill station is 26 Km
- Himmatnagar to Hadmat sunset point or Rajendranagar hill station is 33 Km

Here is the route
There is a beautiful road to reach there from the village It is a state highway and as per current road condition, it has excellent condition compared to national highway 48 (Ahmedabad – Udaipur). There is surrounding of the Villages, Farms and Hills. At the last, it has a sharp curve for 1 km driving to reach on top of the hill to view sunset point
The water appearing in the above image is the Indrasi Reservoir on the Hathmati River which merges to the Sabarmati River after a few km. This Reservoir is very large and extends till Bhiloda.
When you reach there is no board or nothing for food so keep the arrangement of water and food
It is a photogenic place and it becomes very beautiful in monsoon
It’s famous for the sunset time so try to reach there around 5 PM in Winter and 6:30 PM in Summer. In Monsoon reach any time 🙂
While returning, In my life I have the first time got chance to see a nocturnal bird on the road from 6 feet distance in front of Car. Yes, it was the NightJar Nocturnal Bird (નિશાચર પક્ષી). The villager said it’s common to sight this bird here so everyone can get a chance to see it if comes in the night or early morning. So please be slow in driving the car to save this bird.
Then near the village, we have found Tetar which commonly appears in the villages.
We spent around 1 hr and it was refreshing to explore the unexplored. Must visit while you visit Shamlaji of Udaipur, you will not regret it.
