Sênggêzangbo Town, or Shiquanhe Town (Chinese: 狮泉河镇, i.e. "Lion Spring River Town") is a town in Tibet. It is the main town of Ngari Prefecture, and of the Gar County of that prefecture. Historically the town was also known as Ger. This name, in the form Gar, is now used to refer to the entire county; however, as the custom with Chinese county seats is, Gar is often used to refer to the county seat as well, and it may be labeled that way on maps.
