Dear Aneesh,

You can see the admin password from backend database.

Step-1: Connect to that database from terminal or user interface

Step-2: Fire select query

Example (in terminal)

1. Please type below command in terminal.

 sudo su postgres

2. Then they will ask system password, Please enter it.

3. Then you will to write 

psql your_database_name

4. Fire below query.

select password, login from res_users where login='admin';

Hope this help for you.
