Here's how you can reach Bhagwan Mahaveer Sanctuary and Mollem National Park from New Delhi:

By Train: If you're someone who believes in experiencing the journey before getting to the destination, catch a train from New Delhi to get to Goa in 24-30 hours (depending on the train you pick). The sanctuary is about an hour and half's drive from Madgaon railway station (45 km).
