Goa: Bhagvan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary

Situated along the North-East border of Goa at Molem, about one and half hours journey from Panaji (60 kms.) along Panaji-Belgaum National Highway, the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife sanctuary covers 240 sq. kms. of thick forest clad slopes of Western Ghats and its valleys and is the biggest of the three sanctuaries of Goa.

The sanctuary is rich in wildlife. It is a paradise for bird watchers. Besides flora and fauna there are many important geological and historical features in this sanctuary. Dudhsagar falls, about an hour's journey from Colem by train, is a feast for the eyes.

The "Devil canyon" is another beautiful geological spot. The famous Tambdi Suria temple is about 13 kms. from Molem. The Dept. of Tourism has built comfortable cottages and dormitories for tourists.
