Yes, by car car Anuradhapura is approx. 1.5 hours from Habarana. You should even include Mihintale.

Thank you! I am a bit short on time for doing both... and do you know how much a car would cost for doing so?

About 120 km back and forth which means Rs 5,500-6,000

All the best,

Buses from Anuradhapura to Polonnaruwa should stop at Habarana.

Buses pretty much stop wherever you want them to stop. Just ring the bell.

There are however official bus stops in Habarana. Just a few metres down from the intersection in all directions. Trouble with Habarana, is that the buses are often quite packed by the time they get there. I did my best sardine impression for about 1/2 hour from Habarana to Trincomalee on a Sunday. I got a seat after about 50 minutes.

How much should a taxi for 3 people and luggage cost for transport from Anuradhapura to a hotel just outside Habarana?
