I went to Jantar Mantar. Several data including the study of planetary motions get published every year. Jantar Mantar indeed is a work of intelligence which undoubtedly has brought grandeur to the Indian Architectural works. It is great place to go.

Jantar Mantar is one of the several Jantar Mantar in India though the one at Ujjain is relatively a smaller version. Nothing exceptional to see.

Decent. If you have never been to any, you must visit here. Sun dial is cool and simple to understand but other Jantar (Yantra - machines) are for astronomers. There is a small planetarium inside and may be good add on to your visit.
