I *was* going to say to type "/usr/bin/open Terminal" in Terminal, but then I realized that wouldn't help.

nr konjeti, which operating system is your mac system?
The Terminal comes with OS X in the folder Bear named above. If you're running OS 9 then you'd have to upgrade to OS X before looking for Terminal.

Hi narasimharao, please avoid phrases like "please reply immediately". It just ticks people off and won't get you an answer any sooner.
If you are running Jaguar (OS X 10.2) then the Terminal app will be in the /Applications/Utilities folder as previously posted. If it is not there, then it has been deleted. In this case, you'll either need to obtain a copy from another Mac system, or repair your OS X installation.
hth,
bear

Are you running your Mac at home, or in an office? Was it configured by your IT department? It's not unusual for an IT department to create a "Master" image of a particular configuration of the OS and apply it to all workstations. It is highly likely they would also strip out any apps that would be a potential security issue, like the Terminal app.

An alternative to the OS X Terminal.app is the better replacement terminal iTerm - http://www.iterm2.com/

BUT - I don't know if it will work with OS X 10.2
