Shobhika font is a free font that has some of the largest number of glyphs 
(i.e has many conjuncts) for the Devanagari script.

The font also has a good Latin component based on PT Serif. This Latin part 
has good support for the roman (IAST) transliteration for Sanskrit. But 
strictly only the IAST spec character for Sanskrit are available.

It also has glyphs for some commonly used mathematical symbols.

Noto Serif Devanagari is also decent for just Devanagari (not sure of the IAST 
part).

As for Sans typefaces, Mukta Devanagari is a free font:

Of these, Shobhika has the best conjunct coverage. I will shortly update the 
wiki with a much more exhaustive list and report here.
