Is there somewhere you can view a list of all webparts embedded on a specific page?

I have taken over development of a SharePoint website and some pages have a ton of webparts, and I have no way of knowing the name of each webpart so that I can go in and modify them.

You can add ?contents=1 to the current page url to view a 'web parts maintenance page'. From there you should be able to see the web parts on the page, the type, and if they're open or closed.

Thanks @glynClough Is there a way where i can get their GUIDs? Please share your thoughts… – vignesh Jun 16 '15 at 5:13

When using the SharePoint object model you can get a webpartcollection using the webpartmanager. This has a "WebParts" property which returns a webpartcollection. Here you can get all the webparts properties.
