Doing a quick google search 1,000,000 rupiah equals about 54gbp 70 USD, with an average monthly wage of about 280 USD. So this bag costs about the same as the weekly working wage of an average Indonesian. For comparison the cost of a Big Mac combi meal in Jakarta is about 54,000 Rupiah and the cost for a bottle of coke about 8000 Rupiah (https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/country_result.jsp?country=Indonesia).
When you write in English "The price of my bag is one million rupiah." you are using the Indonesian meaning of rupiah (singular or plural). In English we would make it plural (perhaps mixed) and say, The price of my bag is one million rupiahs." ie, plural . ( I notice that "Spell Check" agrees with me!)
