"I like going to temples, wherever I get religious place I go there. I feel good and feel happy, and I will continue (to go)," Gandhi told reporters here.
"I heartily welcome #ElectionHindu @OfficeOfRG to Ballari. The #Congress President will fulfill our dream of a #CongressMuktKarnataka," Yeddyurappa had said in a tweet, ahead of Gandhi's visit to the state from February 10.
Gandhi's temple run in his election itinerary which began in the run-up to the Gujarat assembly polls, has invited the criticism from the BJP that it was an election exercise.
Other critics have called it "soft Hindutva."
During his current tour to north Karnataka, Gandhi visited Goddess Huligamma temple, a famous shrine in the region, and Gavi Siddheshwara Mutt, a mutt of the majority Lingayat community.
He also visited a Dargah in Raichur today.
He said "Modiji comes here and speaks about corruption. Yeddyurappa is someone who had gone to jail and come."
"When Yeddyurappa and Modiji speak about corruption, theyshould inform people that during BJP rule four ministers hadgone to jail, Yeddyurappa himself had gone to jail and 11 ministers had to resign. Let them explain about it," he said.
Questioning whether the requisite permissions were taken from the cabinet committee on security, Gandhi asked what the aircraft's price was.
"Earlier Defence minister said she will share the price details to the country. After three to four months she is saying the matter is a state secret. Was it not state secret earlier?," he asked.
Amit Shah has rejected the charge of corruption.
His son has filed a criminal defamation suit against the news portal which claimed his business fortunes had zoomed after BJP came to power in 2014.
