Ambatondrazaka is a city in Madagascar. In 2004 its population was 75,675.

The city was founded by Randriambololona and three children: Raseheno, Ramiangaly and Razak who settled here in the late eighteenth century.

From a historical and linguistic point of view, Ambatondrazaka originates from two words: "Vato" which means stone in Malagasy, and Razak. The name refers to an oath which Razak took befrore a stone lifted at Andohatanjona.

A railroad once connected the city to the capital but is no longer in use.
